This compelling red wine is a classic blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. It is aromatic and fruity with supple tannins, flowing into ripe notes of garrigue herbs and cherries.
The vineyards are located directly below an amphitheatre hollowed out by the river Orbieu, in the Lagrasse area, at the foot of Mount Alaric. Partly sheltered by the southern tip of Mount Alaric from the westerly ‘Cers’ wind that blows across lower Languedoc, Lagrasse enjoys a Mediterranean climate that is very conducive to late ripening. The elevation of the vineyard, between 100 and 150 metres above sea level, mitigates the high summer temperatures.
