Deep ruby color with an earthy nose; rich, smooth, and tangy, with blackberry and plum showing on a lush palate that gives way to a long fnish. A wine of considerable value from the Beaucastel folks.
A beautiful deep red hue that seems almost opaque. The nose shows caramel and spices that mingle with red berry fruit. The palate is full and deep, with fine tannins and good length.
Served at 8°C (64°F) this is the perfect companion to straightforward meals with dishes such as grilled meat or poultry. Its fine structure will also enable it to match more complex flavors, especially Mediterranean or Provençal dishes.
Blend: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre
