"This really is the aristocrat of the Languedoc appellations. Glides. Complete"

Strict parcel selection made by Laurent Calmel and Jerome Joseph. 65% of vines planted on a clay-limestone soil and 35% on schist soils. A careful blending harmonizes Syrah, Cinsault and Grenache so that elegance and softness of tannins develops as the wine matures.
Aged 12 months in concrete tank.
Decant and serve at ~17°С. Perfect companion to game dishes, red or white meat. Try also with pasta and risotto, stew and grilled veggies.

A blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache, and 20% Cinsault from clay-limestone and schist soils, this has a ripe, fresh, smoky mineral, dark plum, mulberry, spice, and floral nose. The medium-full bodied palate is soft with rounded tannins and more smoky mineral, dark berry, mulberry, and touches of floral on the flavour profile. It has fresh acids while the finish is long and minerally. Tasted Sept/2019.
