An award winning blend of Syrah and Cinsault which is regularly praised by the Guide Hachette (the French wine bible), gaining two stars in the current edition. It offers a rare balance of freshness and concentration. The heavy contrast is why Richard Maby named this cuvée, "Baroque", as all his wines bring together his two passions of wine and music.

This offers great value as it is the only plot on the estate which is classified at the lower IGP (rather than AOC) level. However, the viticulture and winemaking are given just the same attention as the higher classification vineyards on the rest of the estate.

In the glass it shows a bright purple colour. The delightful nose releases aromas of redcurrant, dried garrigue herbs, smokiness, black pepper and spices. The palate enhances these initial sensations and develops with great style and a wonderful freshness. It is highly characteristic of the southern Rhône.

Pair this with antipasta, or tapas, such as stuffed peppers or artichokes.
