Details

Ripe red/black fruit aromas and characteristic pepper notes. Lovely softness in the mouth with velvety tannins and confit fruits building across the palate, hints of tobacco and leather and a nice spine of acidity from the Syrah as well as some spicy blackcurrant fruit.

THE VINEYARD

This chirpy convivial red comes from the pebble (galets) strewn clay terraces of the Gard between Avignon and Nîmes. This super little co-op works according to the principles of Terra Vitis using no chemical treatments other than a little sulphur. The grape blend varies, but usually features Grenache (roughly 50%) with Syrah and Mourvedre in equal measure. Very much a natural wine with no filtering or fining. Bottled in spring after fermentation is finished, the wine is very juicy with a soft slightly cloudy purple colour and gentle flavours.
