PRODUCTION

Grenache, Syrah and Mouvèrdre vines grow on two steeply-terraced plots of limestone, granite and schist. Herbs grow among the vines, and behind this scenic vineyard is the Dentelles de Montmirail (affectionately known as ‘Lace Mountain’ due to the series of ruggedly curved peaks at the top). 50% of this rich and complex wine is unoaked, the other half in small French oak barrels of 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill for 12 months before bringing them together for release.

TASTING NOTE

Intense aromas of black cherries, then a wisp of smoke creeps in along with some hints of toasted cocoa beans. Deep and intense, this wine slowly reveals its secrets – black cherries, dark chocolate, a hint of clove and nutmeg – hugely rich and enveloping but with elegance.

FOOD MATCH

Ideal with a good Provençale daube or game dishes. Also a treat with hard cheeses, particularly farmhouse cheddar.
