  • Tasting

    This vintage is obtained with a selection of SYRAH, vinified without sulfite. The aim is to produce a vintage intended for marketing within the year. The color is purple with vermilion reflections. The nose is very expressive, flattering with fresh fruit: strawberry and red fruit compote (cherry, strawberry). The attack on the palate is tangy which reinforces the notes of tangy red fruits (redcurrant), the tannins are discreet and velvety. Very pretty expressive wine to be enjoyed young while waiting for the Vespro and Initium...

    From the aperitif, on nice grilled dishes such as Maussane lamb chops.
