Fermentation and maturation in new French oak lends lavish streaks of vanilla, cinnamon and toast to this varietal Roussanne, but there's plenty of concentrated pineapple, tangerine and apple too. It's hedonistic and creamy in texture but beautifully structured. This wine should gain balance and integration over the next decade.

Blackberries, blueberries, herbs and spices on the nose. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins. Flavorful and fleshy texture on the palate with an ink-like feel. Savory finish with pretty, dark fruit.
The color in the glass is ruby with violet sheen. Marked by its terroir character of spices, black pepper, lavender, black cherries and blackberries. Elegant and well balanced, full-bodied, powerful with persistent aromas of red fruit and garrigue. This wine offers a great tasting pleasure and reward the most patients.
Enjoy with braised meat with black olives, beef tartare with bearnaise sauce, foil truffle foie gras, chocolate cake.
