Tasting Notes:
Deep red-black fruit with just a whiff of oak. Decent tannin and great acidity suggest this wine - which is hugely enjoyable now - could last much longer than it will probably be given by anyone who owns a bottle or two. The Grenache is inevitably very quiet here, only included to comply with the appellation rules which don't allow for mono-varietal wines.

Critic Reviews:
'Named after a local tale that this stony, well-exposed top of the hillside was roamed by a little man and a black, truffle-hunting dog. 50% unoaked Grenache and 50% Syrha aged in barrique. Vines are 30 to 50 years old. Much less fragrant and more brooding than the Ribes du Vallat blend. A much more serious wine than the price suggests but not yet ready. Still quite a bit of tarry, grainy tannin and some very obvious Grenache sweetness in the mix too.' 16.5/20 (Jancis Robinson MW,
Bistro food - steak and chips etc.
