Product description

From a high altitude vineyard near Roaix, at the northern fringe of Southern Rhone, this wine is a blend of very old Grenache and Syrah. The vineyard's elevation gives this dark and concentrated Cotes du Rhone its unique finesse and balance.

This wine was neither fined nor filtered before bottling in order to preserve its personality and intensity. And although this wine could be enjoyed young, it will develop its full character much later and will keep its freshness for at least 20 years after bottling.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast     Enticing whiffs of game, leather and dried herbs lend savory complexity to plush mulberry, plum and dried-strawberry flavors in this opulent, full-figured red. It's a rounded, voluminous wine with a slightly warming finish and ripe but grippy tannins. It needs a few years to integrate but should drink well from 2020–2030. *Cellar Selection*
