Terroir, terroir terroir! Nobody does it quite like the French, and this is a shining example - earth, leather, barnyard, and black berries open on the nose and transition on the palate to black pepper, leading into raspberries and plentiful small tannins wrapped in balanced acidity. The finish is noticeably dry, ushering hints of blackberries and raspberries. This is a perfect wine for lighter fare like charcuterie, but can hold its own against lamb or even wild boar.
- Côtes du Rhône
- Grenache 80%, Syrah 20%
- Alcohol by Volume
- Cases Produced
Produced from estate vineyards planted in high-altitude clay and chalk soils in the northeastern part of Cairanne. Grapes are hand harvested and fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel and cement tanks. Made from 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this is a classic old-world beauty that I recommend you enjoy over the next eight years.
