Classic modern Rhône, dominated by Grenache and Syrah and dusted with Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. The vineyards are around 300m, on gravelly soils dotted with pebbles and limestone. One third of this sees time in used wood for 6 months. Ripe and fleshy raspberry, black cherry and mulberry are punctuated with waves of tar, resinous dried raspberry, new leather and ample black pepper. Tannins are grippy but cushy, housing the ripe fruit to a clipped, warm finish.
