The Wines

100% Grenache (1930s-1940s) on the rocky plateau, up to 50% destemmed, 2 week vinification, pumping overs, 1 or 2 cap punchings, aged 5-10 year 228 & 225-litre oak casks 7-8 months, unfined, unfiltered, named after a chef frined, first wine 1992, not made every year, 2,000 b, “enough to fill the vat”


dark, bright, shiny dark red. Black cherry, towards liqueur aroma, has game and earthy touches, ground nuts here as well. The fruit tastes of black cherry or blackberry, with a the late arrival of an Indian tea implant. I find this an in and out wine, inconsistent. Has a licorice aftertaste. 14°. 2015-16 Nov 2009
