A great typical Languedoc, much more complex than its price suggests. Fresh fruit (cherry, blackcurrant), spices, minty touch and silky tannins: everything is there to give a maximum pleasure. Oak ageing provides a long, toasted finish and a healthy structure. You'll regret not to have added a few more bottles to your order.

|What experts say|
|Tom Cannavan wine-pages.com|
On 2013 vintage: "An oak-aged blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, from selected vineyard plots, this has a dramatically dark colour and immediate meatiness, earthiness and savoury density on the nose. On the palate a real juiciness of red berries emerges, coated in a smoothing, vanilla-touched coating of the barrels, but all given lovely tension by a tight, plum-skin tannin roughness, juicy acids and a tobacco and spice note."
