The Wines

60-70% Counoise, 30-40% Mourvèdre (early-mid 2000s) from sandy, compacted safre soils on Caillou, 22 day direct press steel vat fermentation, raised 4 months, malo blocked, 5,500-6,530 b


subdued pink colour. Herbs such as thyme, a note of candy/bonbon and redcurrant show on the nose. There are singed moments on the attack that are hard to escape. This lacks the clearest of cut, starts on the intake more than the out-breath. Food is a must for this, since it can’t drink solo, has some late degree charge. 13°. To 2015 . 70% Counoise, 30% Mourvèdre. €4.50 export.  Oct 2013

2011 ()

onion skin colour, clear. Has a waxen-floral, honeysuckle, buttercup flowers air, unusual, out of the loop, but it is round and rather full. Creamy, scented, rounded palate, whose texture is agreeable and smooth. It ends on a pocket of pebbly, light tannin. A shade simple, but has some character - an interesting mix of varieties used. 13°. €8. To 2014 . 60% Counoise, 40% Mourvèdre.  Feb 2012
