80%Syrah - 20% Grenache.
These are typical vines in the region, which develop spicy and pepper flavours.
We make the wines from grapes harvested from slopes in the region around our Mas Janeil estate in the South of France.
Attractive deep red colour. Concentrated nose of black fruit, liquorice, complemented by fresh notes of strawberry and raspberry. Good roundness on the palate with plenty of suppleness in the mouth, the tannins are dense with an elegant structure. Aromatic finish with black fruits.
2016's climate has contrasted a lot with that of 2015, but finally offered beautiful surprises. Its first months have been be marked by a particularly mild winter in
comparison with the average, only rarely undergoing temperatures below 0°C. Spring was subsequently rather cool and humid, all the while sparing the vines from spring frosts. With a half-hearted weather in April and May, flowering season suffered a slight delay compared to the previous vintage. Following this morose offseason, the particularly hot summer didn't really begin until mid- June. Contrasting with particularly high daytime temperatures, nights have remained refreshingly cool, including during the period between flowering and veraison (15°C on average), developing and preserving all the aromatic potentials of both grape varieties.
