This wine is bright red in colour with deep purple hints. The nose is aromatic and lifted, with cassis, plum and herbs giving way to spice and a touch of game. The palate is medium to full with attractive berry fruit intensity, fresh acidity and firm but smooth tannins..
The Carignan grapes for this wine were grown in vineyards around Badassière in the Languedoc. This region benefits from a sunny, warm climate which encourages ripe flavours in the wines, while the coastal breezes help retain freshness and aromatics. The grapes were part machine harvested and part hand harvested at night..
Good with game, especially pheasant and other poutlry.
