Grown on alluvial and glacial soils which are full of ‘galets roules’ or large round quartz stones. The combination gives the wine a clean, clear quality much like a stream running over pebbles. Add some wild sage and herbs with figs and black raspberries that brood in your mouth for ages and you have a wonderful wine. The blend is basically 50:50 Grenache to Syrah with a tiny amount of Mouvedre. This has me lusting after some sizzling rich sausages with a ratatouille or roast vegetables.
