A powerful and fine wine. Mature nose with mild tobacco and morelloflavours. In mouth,rich attack of ripe fruits, livened up by little fresh fruits liqueur (blackcurrant/raspberry ) aromas. The melting oak tannins come all along with the wine in mouth. Fresh, complex (garrigue, coffee-roasting) and with a very long finish.
Grenache noir 90% (more than 60 years old), Syrah 10%.
|To drink at 17°C with duck breast, roasted shoulder of lamb or stewed game.
