Tasting Notes:
Firmer than "Les Travers" with some solid, spicy black fruit character. Needs a little time to soften the more tannic structure but will be good from around 2015.
Drinking Dates:
2014 to 2020
Cépagement:
60% Grenache, 40% Syrah (80 year old vines, 28 hl/ha)
Upbringing:
100 % hand-picked and selected. Destalking, no yeast-added, cold pre-fermentation during 3 weeks with daily "pigeage" and temperatures maintained at 31°C. Matured 60% in vats, 40% in two years old oak casks "demi-muids" for a year. No filtering.
ABV:
14%
Critic Reviews:
'Impressive with a tad more richness and structure... it offers gorgeous raspberry, currant, liquorice and ground herbs in its medium-bodied, rich and nicely balanced personality. With a great mid-palate, solid purity and ripe tannin, it's an impressive 2011 that will have upwards of a decade of longevity.' 90-91/100 (Wine Advocate)

'The Syrah dominates the aroma with violet notes. Smooth texture with beautiful tannins' (Bettane & Desseauve)

Food:
Full, rich food - especially roast pork, grilled meats etc.

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
