shiny red robe, legs on show. The nose leads on a sustained raspberry fruit with an inner oiliness, has a suave aspect. Licorice and a light notion of dried garrigue herbs are also present. The palate springs out on notably gutsy red berry fruit with drive, near power moments towards the finish. It’s on a high wire vis-à-vis its degree. The fruit gives a red cherry stone flavour with grainy tannin. It requires food to help soak up its inner power. 14.5°. 67,000 b. 54% Syr, 46% Gren. From spring 2017. 2020-21 Nov 2016
