A medium-dark, youthful cherry red colour, with a nose that offers an array of bramble, blackcurrant and blueberry fruits and garrigue herbs, with further notes of black olive, licorice, leather and damp earth - all-in-all, a pretty intoxicating and complex mix! Likewise with the palate, which manages to be both full-bodied yet 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, ample acidity and a long, spicy/savoury finish. This is somewhat more complex, chunky and serious than earlier vintages, and can certainly hold its own against many a serious southern Rhone red, from more "elevated" appellations. But that doesn't stop it drinking beautifully - as always - right from the start (tasted June 2021). More to the point, it offers an awful lot of bang for your buck! Serve very lightly chilled, with all manner of grilled or roasted red and white meats, stir fried pork and peppers, or perhaps a mushroom risotto. Certified organic and biodynamic.
