Dark, semi-opaque blackberry colour, fading to a tiny cherry red rim. A wonderfully exotic, spicy bramble and cassis nose, with notes of black olive, garrigue herbs, black pepper and a faint whiff of lily of the valley. In the mouth, it is rich yet supremely elegant, spicy and chock full of sweet red and black fruits, again with savoury black olive and garrigue herb notes. The tannins are ripe, supple and spicy, countered by tangy orange and cherry kernel acidity, whilst the finish is peppery/spicy, juicy/tangy and very long. Close your eyes and you could be in Côte-Rôtie! This really is a gorgeous wine, which is ready to drink now, but also has the all the ingredients necessary for it to age and evolve for another 5 years or more. Certified organic and biodynamic.
