The Wines

55% Grenache, 45% Mourvèdre (vines mid-1990s) from sandy slopes, small pebble stony land with sandy subsoils, steel vat fermented 3 weeks after 12 hour bleeding off of juice from the skins (saignée), steel vat raised 6 months, malo blocked, fined, filtered, “drink with white meats, grills, duck”, 2,800 b


red-tinted, cherry red hue. There is a good, discreet welling up of red fruits on the nose, which has the scope to vary, open, carries mystery, cherry stone-kirsch notes with a strawberry coulis angle. It’s a good start, dried herbs de Provence present. This is wholesome, covers the ground well, is good and fluid, a red cherry-mulberry darkness in its red fruits. It has the structure, depth for red mullet, tuna, paella, and is long, sustained, dabs of salt on the aftertaste. It’s certainly on a par with many Tavels. 13°. 2,800 b. 55% Gren, 45% Mourv. 2020-21 Sept 2018
