Place: Côtes Du Rhône — Rhône Valley, France
Variety: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre
A fantastic blend from one of the Rhône’s greats. It comprises 60% grenache, 35% syrah and 5% mourvèdre from Plan de Dieu and Visan, both in the Southern Rhône, although he is best known and most sought after for his Côte Rôties.
It’s aged in concrete, retaining freshness whilst developing a plump texture and grainy tannins. A demonstration in the twin virtues of density and plushness, particularly in this moreish and food-friendly package.
