Intense aromas of ripe raspberries and black cherries, then a wisp of smoke creeps in along with some hints of grilled cocoa beans. Before the wine hits the palate, you know that youre in for an explosion of flavours! 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.
Producer Details Our love affair with the southern Rhne is both enduring and unswerving. We believe to our marrow that we can make great wine here. And for this reason, we have bought our first vineyard in France, here in the southern Rhne in the village of Cairanne, youll not be surprised to learn! Ten years ago we first glimpsed the potential of the vineyards of Cairanne when we released our 2000 vintage of La Cte Sauvage. Now we have several plots of old vines we can call our own and begin to realise our dream of making even better wine. Over the past decade or so we have built enviable relationships with a network of local growers and we will of course continue to source grapes and wine from their trove of prized vineyards for our full range of Rhne wines.
In the Vineyard Grenache, Syrah and Mouvrdre 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).
In the Winery This rich and complex wine is made by traditional vinification. 50 % of the wine has been barrel aged for 14 months in barrels of 2 and 3 years, just to give another layer to the wine and a touch of vanilla pod.
