Description

Less than 300 cases made each year. This wine is so limited that the wine is usually sold out before it can be reviewed!

90% Grenache planted 1904, 1940s,
1977 and 2001, 15% Mourvèdre planted early 1980s and 5% Cinsault from sandy, stony soil at Courthézon, Sorgues, destemmed, concrete vat-fermented 25 days, raised 5-6 months, unfined and filtered.

Dark purple in the glass, with a spicy nose full of blackberry, fresh flowers and savory aromatics of fresh herbs thrown on the grill. Black fruits persist on the layered palate along with lavender, olives and licorice. Think of this as a mini-Chateauneuf-du-Pape, not a Cotes-du-Rhone. Medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity keeping it fresh.

Wines of Rhone Valley

The Rhone wine region is situation in the south of France in the Rhone Valley. The region is split into north and south with distinctively different winemaking styles. In the north, the main grape used is Syrah and is sometimes blended with white varietals. In the south however, reds are a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault. You may be familiar with this sort of blend; in Australia it is labelled GSM.

Wines are produced under various Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designations. The most prestigious of which is Chateauneuf-du-Pape. You may also have heard of other AOC names such as Gigondas, Hermitage, Lirac, St Joseph. Wines coming from these and other AOCs are all on the higher end of the market.

On the value end we have wines produced in Cotes-du-Rhone AOC. Cotes-du-Rhone often refers to wines made in the Rhone Valley that do not fall under any other AOC, often from the flatter areas around Southern Rhone. However, it also does include the fringes of well-respected northern appellations as well. In terms of volume, a majority of Rhone wine falls under the Cotes-du-Rhone AOC and it offers some of the best value in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds.

Full-bodied and flavourful white wine blends are also made in the region. These are typically a combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier.
