This is a blend of 80% Grenache (vines planted in 1948) and 20% Mourvèdre (vines planted in 1977), grown on north-facing slopes with grey clay soil. The wine spent a year, post ferment, ageing in large, old-oak casks.
“There's more pepper and herb here, still wonderfully ripe raspberries but less chocolate. Full-bodied, it's still silky and refined, with tremendous length on the finish.” 94 points,. Robertparker.com, November 2017.
