The is an intense ruby color in appearance. The nose is very expressive and opens itself on licorice, violette, and crushed red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) followed by spicy notes of pepper and juniper. Discreet woody notes brings a beautiful complexity. The mouth is dominated by the suavity of the Grenache that expresses on ripe fruit, figs and plums. The Syrah gives some vivacity and greediness to this great Cotes du Rhone showing silky tannins. This wine perfectly accompanies lamb chops with rosemary, red meat with rich sauce or cheese.
