A blend of 85% Mourvedre, 10% Grenache and 5% Cinsault.
An intense wine, and while you’ll find plenty of juicy dark fruit and some meatiness, I found it driven by herbs, including thyme, rather than just fruit. With 5 years age on it, the tanins have softened and the texture is deliciously smooth. Long, lean, balanced and complex - this is a delight.
The ageing potential is up to 30 years (if stored correctly of course).
