TASTING NOTE:

Mourvèdre at its best! Warm, slightly wild, slightly soft sofa leather but essentially fabulously ripe fruit, fully integrated with oak. This, the basic cuvee, is 80% Mourvèdre, with the balance being Carignan, Grenache and Cinsault. It is far from basic as with every sniff and slurp, different nuances are revealed - fresh earth, black pepper, grilled meat, cinnamon, bay, sage, blackberry, prune and blackcurrant all featured in my copious notes. The finish is fresh and classy, with rounded tannins - classic drink or keep quality wine. A great way to discover Mourvèdre dominated wines, silky smooth with a stiff upper lip, generous but serious. A great wine with still lots to give.
