Brimming with fruit compte and olive tapenade flavours, this is a powerful wine with savoury complexity. The oak ageing has produced a smooth, supple finish.
The trickling mountain stream called Le Trignon (which is barely a torrent in the spring) borders the Sablet appellation under the landmark peaks of the Dentelles de Montmirail in the southern Rhne valley. Here Alphonse Barqueros tends his vines 80% Grenache Noir, 20% Syrah - with the loving care of one who knows every vine stock.
Press Quotes 2012 Vintage: "An expressive bouquet of leather, cigar box and spicy fruit illustrated why the Haute Marone picked up a By The Glass gong as well as Gold. Vibrant, spicy, very approachable but big enough to impress, said Sandro Lyhs of Oxo Tower Bar, while team leader Annette Scarfe MW found: Floral notes and ripe fruit, with spice on a warm finish.'"
