TastingCrimson robe with purple nuances. The nose is seductive with aromas of black fruits (blackcurrant, blueberry, raspberry) and hints of “garrigue” (thyme and rosemary). The palate is elegant, round with a spicy finish.
Food & wine pairingsFor everyday fun and simple meals : roast chicken, ribs or fricassee of wild mushrooms.
In the Southern Rhône Valley the harvest was spread out between the 2nd of September and the beginning of October. The whites were harvested in the first half of September while the reds were harvested in two stages in order to maximise elegance and intensity. The first half was around mid-September while the second picking took place towards the end of September, after a brief, beneficial rainfall. The balance and concentration of this vintage are remarkable.
