An intriguing nose of tobacco, cloves and leather is followed by a luxuriant yet sleek and supple palate. Dark cherries and chocolate are interwoven with fine French oak and supported by firm tannins.
Selected from two vineyard plots in the southernmost part of the Rhône valley called ‘Le Terminus’ and ‘Beauchêne’ from low-yielding fifteen year-old vines grown on red pebble stones, 'Grès Rhôdaniens'. These red pebble stones help to retain the southern French heat which is absolutely essential for Mourvedre as it needs a long warm growing season to ripen to its full potential.
Mourvèdre is fascinating grape variety which often needs work to tame the wild edges of its character and fashion a wine of individuality, panache and style. This particular cuvée was aged in a total of 22 one-year-old barrels of French oak for eighteen months; a total of 38.76hl selected by tasting from an initial 50hl.
