Out of stock
Inside the Bottle: This little charmer opens up with the smell of beautiful flowers, high-toned red fruits and the classic aroma of “garrigue.” Garrigue is a regional name for the herbs of Provence that typically grow on limestone soils, usually a mix of dried thyme, lavender and fennel. It is a wonderful smell, and wines from this region tend to have these effusive aromas. This is not a wine that hits you over the head with power, but rather greets you with Provence’s traditional three kisses on the cheek. It’s a friendly, fun, straight and pure wine.
Other Details: The principal grape in the mix, Grenache, gives an elegant expression of high-toned red fruits. The earthy and decadent notes come from the Carignan while Syrah brings a touch of pepper and spice. Finally, the Cinsault adds some softness and high-toned aromas.
