No oak ageing
A semi carbonic maceration of Grenache Noir, that opens up with rich and velvety red fruit notes. The mouth is juicy, mature but without any overheated sensation. The freshness of the schistous terroir gives a lovely grip, and a good balance to thie wine. Tannins are firms but gentle, supporting black plum flavours with a hint of black olive tapenade.
A flavoursome flame grilled steak, veal or a bowl of pasta.
