Vin de France
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
A mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from the highest vineyards in the Saint-Jean-de-Minervois appellation. Profound depth with blackberry bursts and an underpinning of minerality from the stony limestone covering the vineyards. Nicely structured with ripe tannins, which become increasingly harmonious after several year’s keeping. A racy wine!
30% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah
This blend of organic Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre is deliciously complex. Luscious, ripe fruit mingles with spice, licorice and vanilla. As well, herbal notes deliver hints of the wild Mediterranean garrigue.
IGP Pays d’Herault
This 100% Syrah is light, fruity and surprisingly easy drinking. Ample sunshine and cooling sea breezes balance Syrah's juicy black cherry and plum fruit with a layer of smoky, savory, complexity and gives very fine, light, tannin on the mouthwatering finish. A friendly wine you can serve slightly chilled in the summer.
IGP Côtes Catalanes
This award-winning wine is described as a “Velvet Touch”. A rich complex blend of baked blackberries mixed with hints of herbal garrigue and wafts of violets all held within in a beautiful mouth feel. A sophisticated, rich, and delicious wine!
