Tasting Notes:
Gorgeous rich, sweet peppery fruit intertwined with Asian spices and some animal notes (the Mourvèdre) and toasty oak. Close to perfection, it needs 3-4 years for those Mourvedre tannins to melt and the oak to give way to the fruit. Very long.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2025
Cépagement:
60% Grenache (100-year-old vines), 40% Mourvèdre (50-year-old vines)
Soil:
Sandy clay soil facing east which ensures freshness.
Upbringing:
Grenache aged in two- and three-year-old barrels; Mourvèdre aged in new barrels for 18 months.
ABV:
15%
Critic Reviews:
"Smoked game/Peking duck and distinctive animal overtones, new saddle leather, spice box, blueberry, black raspberry and even blackberry fruit as well as camphor jump from the glass of this intriguing, moderately tannic wine."93/100 (Wine Advocate)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
