Powerful and rugged, the 2007 Les Clos isn’t difficult to enjoy. Dark-opaque ruby in colour, the wine does seem more...

Well balanced with hints of smoke, leather,dark red fruits and has interesting minerality. Very dry with nice tanins.

From a biodynamic vineyard, this equal blend of Grenache and Syrah impresses with it's authenticity. The wine sees no oak ageing at all so what you taste is pure Rhone. This wine is quite different from the '05, the '06 being less tannic and shows more of the meaty/leathery flavours from the syrah to go along with its flavours of red berries and local herbs. There is also a notable whiff of barnyard, which detracts slightly ...one of the hazards of Organic/biodynamic wines is the possibility of brett. Still, this is a wine that is impressive for its uniqueness, though not for everyone.
