About the wine

Tasting notes

At its core, it’s a wine of deep complexity and nuance. The 2020 seeps out the glass with alluring, complex scents of blue fruits, woodsmoke and slate before a palate-sweeping body moulded by soft tannin, lingering freshness and mineral force. It finishes with outstanding definition and length.

Expert review

An old-vine carignan that is naturally concentrated in flavors, but not in form. Some cement and crushed-stone character to the smoked blue fruit, wild berries, flowers and grilled herbs. Medium-to full-bodied palate with fresh fruit and a supple texture. Very fresh, delicate and composed for a Carignan.
