A blend of ancient, low-yielding Mourvedre, Carignan and Syrah vines planted on a limestone plateau at high elevation. All the fruit it de-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeast in concrete tanks, then transferred to large, used French oak barrels to age before being bottled. It spends an additional 6 months in bottle before release.
A deep and brooding nose of black currant, grilled plum, black olive, thyme, rosemary and truffle. The assertive and rich palate never feels heavy or tiresome, carrying concentrated dark berry fruits over velvety tannins and perfumed violets. Astonishingly drinkable for a wine of such stature. Truly remarkable.
