Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, Carignan
Nose: Initially the nose presents oak and roasted notes from the barrel ageing, it then becomes more complex with a hint of cloves and liquorice.
Palate: Very fresh, with soft tannins,The attack is reserved but very refined, confirming the wine's youth. With a little aeration, it quickly develops volume, offering notes of black fruit and spices. The substantial proportion of Mourvedre in this year's blend, in combination with the balance of the Syrah and the Mediterranean characters of the Grenache and the Carignan, gives the wine a very elegant tannic structure. Well-integrated notes from the barrel ageing mingle harmoniously in a long, lingering finish.
Pairs perfectly with lamb chops, duck confit.
