Tasting Notes:
Another intense wine oozing black fruits and hints of vanilla spice. Lovely Mourvedre - Stef Usseglio is becoming a master of this style. Not typical (Grenache-based) Chateauneuf but delicious all the same (think Hommage a Jacques Perrin but with a lower price tag). This will probably drink younger than earlier vintages.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2025+
Cépagement:
70% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, 10% Syrah
Upbringing:
3 week fermentation in cement vats where it remains for another 10 weeks for malolactic fermentation before being transferred to oak casks for 12 months. Bottled unfiltered.
ABV:
14%
Critic Reviews:
"It possesses a modern yet gorgeous profile with big blackberry, cassis, roasted meats, tree bark and liquorice aromas and flavours all soaring from the glass. This full-bodied, decadent and textured beauty stays remarkably fresh and elegant with fine tannin and great purity of fruit." 95/100 (Wine Advocate)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
