A 2015 blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Carrignan from the Languedoc region of Southern France on the Mediterranean coast. Aged four months in concrete casks. The lack of oak influence really lets the grapes and soil they were grown in come through. This smells like blossoming flowers and wild herbs and pine. Some sour cherry, cranberry, leather, nail polish. The finish is bitter orange peel. The bitterness is a little over the top, but acids are vibrant and refreshing.

This Roussillon red that is too easy to like. Ripe fruit, hints of herbs and pepper, supple tannin, no oak (sorry David, it is 100% raised in concrete), good length. It vanished from my glass in no time. Not for ageing (no more than a couple of years), this is lovely to drink now. Tasted Sep 2018.
