This is a seriously complex and elegant Cotes du Rhone. Gorgeous notes of cherry liqueur, blackberries compete with earthier tones of forrest floor, wet stones and violets for your attention. The palate is concentrated, silky, and slowly descends towards a lengthy, savory, floral and slightly smoky finish. Incredibly nuanced and expressive, it excels way beyond its modest price point
Additional notes from Saint Siffrein:
80% Grenache/20% Syrah. 50 year old vines are divided by only one road that separates it from the parcels of Chateauneuf du Pape.
