The nose of this Rhône-style blend bursts with blackberry jam, cherry, herbs, and a touch of violets. The flavors are crisp, acid is bright and tannins are firm and grippy. This is the ultimate pleasure wine with friends. Serve slightly chilled.

Have a feast with grilled sausage, chops or steaks or a Moroccan tagine.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The vineyards are just to the south of Perpignan near the Mediterranean coastal plains and they have fabulous schiste vineyards high up in the mountains of the Agly Valley above 1,000 feet elevation. The entire terroir is farmed organically.
Production Notes
The secret to this incredibly flavorful wine is immediate maceration after harvesting for 48 hours at 39°F. Then vinification and aging of 12 months in stainless steel vats.
Winemaker Notes
Loved by wine critic Jeb Dunnick, this domaine is run by the husband-and-wife team, Séverine and Philippe Bourrier. Séverine came to winemaking through raw passion, rather than family tradition and legacy. She studied oenology and worked in Bordeaux for a decade before becoming one of the finest female winemakers in the Roussillon. Philippe is the wise, earthy agronomist. Together, they restored an old château, revived vineyards and rechristened the estate L’Ou, Catalan for "egg," a reference to the oval-shaped valley surrounding the estate.
Food Pairing Notes
Have a feast with grilled sausage, chops or steaks or a Moroccan tagine.
