60% Carignan, 30% Grenache Noir, 10% Syrah.

Opulent and richly complex: aromas of cherry jam at first, followed by caramelised apples and spices such as vanilla and cinnamon. Next come notes of freshly grilled almonds and cacao pods. Warmly rich and vivid in the mouth. The elegant tannins and the density of the fruit combine voluptuously, giving a perfect balance. Great elegance is completed at length with notes of torrefaction and pine resin.
