Winemaker's Notes:

A classic Châteauneuf enhancing the soft and rich character of the Grenache on the specific terroir of Châteauneuf. A body both smooth and strong. Food recommendation: Red meats grilled or “en sauce “, coq au vin, venison. Ripe cheeses.

Although winemaker Alexandre is a mere 27 years young he has grown-up in the vineyards and would tell you he’s been making wine for 20 years. His passion is expressed through his wines and truly shows in this fragrant, earthy and beautifully balanced syrah. Rosemary-Lamb would be a natural pair.
