From the Boisset family’s estate in the southern Rhône, close to Avignon and overlooking the Durance River, this blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre shows a lucid ruby-garnet in the glass, revealing vivid garrigue scents, fired clay, rose petal, and cherry aromas. Immediately refreshing, with excellent lift courtesy of a wonderful vintage in Châteauneuf, elegant red berry fruits mingle with savoury pops of leather and earth, dried sage and classy cedar spices from aging in 228-litre French oak barrels over an eight-month period. All this is framed by soft, satiny tannins and a lengthy finish punctuated by an almost iron-like crushed stone minerality and blackcurrant nuances. Refined and classically styled.
