The wine

With the Mourvèdre predominant, this red wine comes over as mature and round with aromas of tiny wild strawberries, spices, thyme, leather and tobacco. In essence, it's elegantly tannic and spicy, with aromatic touches of Morello cherries and Mediterranean bushes. Decanting enhances its spicy nuances.

Abundant, rich and ripe red fruit with lightly spiced pastry and quite brambly complexity. The palate has a super fleshy, bold and upfront-tannin shape. Fresh and easy. Drink now.

The winery has belonged to the Perrin family since 1909, and today the project is under the direction...
