Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Merlot, grown on north-facing slopes in the north-east corner of Pic Saint-Loup. The nose exhibits notes of spiced red and black fruits, enveloped within a complex array of garam masala, woodsmoke, leather, damp earth and incense aromas - like opening an old wardrobe! The altitude and orientation of the vineyards means a longer ripening period, and although there is plenty of fruit concentration, it feels relatively light-bodied and elegant, and more towards the red fruit end of the spectrum. The palate offers an abundance of sour cherry and redcurrant flavours, plenty of tannic grip, a twist of pepper and a sprinkling of garrigue herbs, with bags of acidity and an impressively long finish. In a sort of Beaujolais-meets-Piedmont style, this really is a juicy, fruity, cool-climate Languedoc delight! Certified organic and biodynamic.
