Attractive nose of blue and black berries, slightly floral and smoky. Fruit (blueberry) and spiciness (garrigues) predominate in the mouth, with a salty hint. The Grenache gives the wine a pleasant roundness, it’s juicy and vital. The Syrah provides striking tannins at this stage and gives the wine its structure. Also provides a pleasant tension and directness. The aftertaste is quite long and offers energy-rich material.
