This is another interesting Vin de Pays d’Oc from the south of France. Organically grown, it is a blend of 40% syrah, 40% grenache, 10% carignan and 10% mourvèdre sourced variously from Roussillon, Corbières and La Livinière and is a deep purple in the glass. The wine opens to aromatics of pepper and spice, but mostly spice. The underlying fruit is ripe, fresh and fruity. The palate is full bodied and the length and savoury balance satisfying. Rating: Good. Abv: 14%. Price: N/A. Source: Sample.
