Produced on a very clayey terroir with stones from the Ouvèze river, the Grenache is dominant and develops a fleshy wine. It’s typical aromas of chocolate, cherry and fig match beautifully with the Syrah (violet, spice, liquorice). This 2017 vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential. Beautiful deep purple colour. The nose is powerful, with notes of black fruit like blackberries and peppery spices. The palate is very elegant, with a nice tension, and lets off aromas of black olives and licorice.
