‘What's that?’ I hear you ask (or ‘Qu'es aquo?’ as they say in Occitan)
What is is is stunning old vine Carignan (mostly 80 years old) which produce tiny yields (20hl/ha) of utterly delicious wine
Warm and honest on the nose, packed with tannins that manage, somehow, to be both fleshy and silky all at the same time. Velvety on the palate with lush kirsch cherry infused fruit yet still fresh and revivifying.
Classic Provence rosé, expressive and aromatic, blending fresh cherries and floral notes alongside more exotic fruits then finishing with a soft round palate packed with peach and raspberry.
Very pure, round and flavorful supported by beautiful acidity adding body and volume. There is a fine and elegant aromatic framework enhancing length Beautiful, sharp structure. - Winemakers Note
The wine has lots of warm black fruit and plum aromas, with cinnamon, spices, pepper and a hint of vanilla. The palate is concentrated with damsons, red fruit, spice and stony minerality with a very elegant and warm finish. The mouth is initially very silky but gives way to some mouth watering acidity and firm tannins.
Dark plum, leather and delicate violet aromas, plus notes of woodsmoke and brown spice. A full, firm and ripe red with rich, powerful flavours. All balanced by ripe tannins, complex savoury notes and a long finish.Araldica
