Tasting Notes

This rich, dark red combines notes of blueberry, morello cherry and cocoa. Luxurious, fruity and full, its superb schist terroir gives it a gentle mineral finish and a silky, tannic texture.

Technical Info

Our Carignan grapes are partially de-stemmed then soaked for five weeks to release their rich, dark flavours. After fermenting in stainless steel, the wine is matured for fourteen months, perfecting its careful balance of tannins.

Reviews

Rosemary George MW: “Deep young colour. Quite a firm nose, with some red fruit. And on the palate nicely balanced fruit and silky tannins…drinking beautifully.”

Katherine Dart MW: "There's a lovely purity to the fruit that is both enticing and refreshing. The palate combines bright acidity and smooth tannins with lively, mouth-filling fruit, but this immediately pleasurable and primary character is underpinned by a subtle complexity that nods to minerality and spice."
