(all destemmed fruit; fermented in stainless steel tanks and raised in a combination of foudres, demi-muidsand barriques) Brilliant ruby-red. Aromas of ripe red berries, garrigue and dried flowers develop a hint of white pepper as the wine opens up. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet, spice-tinged raspberry and floral pastille flavors given lift and spine by a jolt of tangy acidity. Finishes long and supple, displaying smooth tannins and lingering florality.
