How it's made

Grenache, Syrah and Mouvèrdre vines grow on two steeply terraced plots of limestone, granite and schist. Herbs grow among the vines and behind this scene vineyard is the Dentelles de Montmirail (affectionately known as "lace mountain" due to the series of ruggedly curved peaks at the top). This rich and complex wine is made by traditional vinification. 50% of the wine has been barrel aged for 14 months in barrels, just to give another layer to the wine and a touch of vanilla.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas of black cherries, the a wisp of smoke creeps in along with some hints of toasted cocoa beans. Deep and intense, this wine slowly reveals it's 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.
