This extraordinary wine is produced from plants of red Grenache more than a century old.
Colour : intense red with a very clear presence of purple hues that recall the glow of a ruby.
Nose : intense, complex and extremely attractive. Notes of blackcurrant, raspberry, very mature orange peel with a subtle reminder of woodland. Gradually, with breathing, floral notes emerge. The rose and orange blossom, personality characteristics of the soil, complement its fruity origin. An enveloping fragrance that awakens the senses and reveals a unique terroir.
Palate : the wine is rich on the palate without being too tannic. Its concentration is based on subtleness and especially its incredibly aromatic tones. The palate is velvety with a burst of flavours. A beautiful wine with a remarkable persistence.
