This wine is dark ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are intense aromas of cherries and raspberries with notes of herbs, liquorice and black pepper. It has a lively acidity with a good concentration of supple tannins evolving towards graphite notes. A long, lingering finish.
2016 is heralded as one of the best vintages in the last 40 years for red wines from the Southern Rhône. A mild winter was followed by an equally clement spring, with modest rainfall. Summer was hot and dry, with cool nights allowing the grapes to ripen and retain excellent levels of acidity. Harvest took place between 6th - 26th September. Warm conditions throughout the year along with reduced yields resulted in wines of great concentration – in colour, tannin and flavour. The 2016s are rich and complex wines with beautiful freshness, elegance and charm.
