Perfumed and bright. Sweet forest berry and hedgerow fruit with a fleck of salt to it and a clear tannic structure. Effusive, easy ripe fruit flavours with plenty of grip on the finish. A blend of 30% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Cinsault and 30% Mourvèdre from a plot of vines adjacent to Beaucastel on the east side. The vines therefore fall just outside of the Châteauneuf appellation but the soil structure is very similar to that of the poor, pebbly, clay-influenced vineyards of Beaucastel.
