Grenache and Syrah are best known as the grapes behind Châteauneuf du Pape, but they have an equally long history in the Roussillon. This sumptuous domaine red offers superb depth and rich, spicy forest fruit with all the warmth of Southern Frankrike.
For wines of real character and individuality that won,t break the bank, head for the ancient growing region of the Roussillon, ,one of the last undiscovered bastions of delicious, value-priced wines, (Robert Parker). This exclusive red is from a historic estate founded in 1636 and re-named shortly after the French Revolution by new owner Magdelaine Bertrand. Its vineyards, situated on high, rocky terraces, are planted with local heroes Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Carignan, as well as a little Cabernet Sauvignon. Made purely from rich, fruity Grenache and warm, spicy Syrah, selected from the estate'soldest vines, this red is packed with ripe, herby forest fruit, and makes a great match for steak and kidney pie or other hearty fare.
