rather dark colour. The nose combines lardon, ham pieces and juiced black fruit jam, has the potential to vary and develop. The debut is juicy, rather floral; it runs with that refrain until a round, more gummy finale comes along. Unpretentious, agreeable table Côtes du Rhône, has friendly pockets of spice and a peppery length. Drink with pies, stews. 14.5°. To 2017  Oct 2013

even red robe; there are traces of herbs in a natural, red jam, raspberry Grenache prime aroma – the nose has no false cellar adornments, is a touch baked. The palate is also Grenache fruit such as plum-hearted, comes in a traditional style with red berry fruit jam flavour, and a decent extra spot of tannin at the end. Authentic, suited to stews, for instance, eaten by an open fire. There is a spot of late sweetness. The attack is tasty, before it become more grainy. 14.8°. 75% vat, 25% oak raising, less oak a correct adaptation to the vintage. €4.70 export this year. To 2016. Oct 2012

full, dark red. Good jam fruit air a little game in the undertow, the main fruit is raspberry with a hint of flowers – a good bouquet. The palate holds rather gummy black fruit, has movement, runs well, with freedom and juicy features, ending roundly. Definite w.o.w. wine – a real drinker with a sprinkle of tannin. Can be drunk solo, at the bar, is rock n`roll wine. The aftertaste is blackberry. 60% vat, 40% oak raising this year. 2017-18 Feb 2012
