About This Wine
A big, structured effort that exudes black fruits, mineral, pepper and underbrush. It is inky coloured, with a big mid-palate, ripe tannin and serious richness.
Intense aromas of cassis, blackberry, and spice, with soft, ripe, tannins on the palate and a lingering finish.
Enjoy this versatile, food-friendly wine on its own, with red meats (grilled, roasted, charcuterie), or with hearty vegetarian fare.

World Wine – The aromas of cracked peppercorns, iodine, blackberries, crushed stone, dried spices and black olives are practically intoxicating on their own. Then, on the palate, you can taste the intensity, with firm tannins that come from a patch of 50-year-old vines in Sorgues. Drink this blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault from 2017-2025, treating it almost as if it were a mini Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – ‘Bright ruby-red. Spicy red berries and cherry on the incisive nose and in the mouth. Fresh and focused, with a peppery element adding refreshing back-end cut. The peppery note defines the finish, which lingers with good persistence and gripping tannins.
