Wine Region: South - France
Grape: Grenache, Mourvedre
Tasting notes: The nose is initially dominated by black fruit, blueberry and graphite notes, and then opens onto hints of spices and violet. On the palate, the attack is full, with a fresh, sophisticated palate of silky tannins. The blueberry notes make way for spicy notes that linger on a long-lasting salty finish with a hint of iodine. Great finesse and purity.
