80% Grencahe, 20% Syrah, vinified separately. A medium-dark, youthful cherry red colour, with a nose that offers a pot-pourri of summer red and black fruits and garrigue herbs, with subtle hints of black olive, leather and sous-bois. Likewise with the palate, which manages to be both "winey" and really quite refreshing at the same time, offering sweet-sour black cherry and berry fruit flavours, again with a touch of black olive and herby savouriness, fine, melting tannins, plenty of orangey acidity and a long, spicy/peppery finish. This vintage is somewhat more complex, full-bodied and serious than previous vintages, but that doesn't stop it drinking beautifully - as always - right from the start (tasted July 2019). More to the point, it offers an awful lot of bang for your buck! Certified organic and biodynamic.
