I was not sure where this wine was going to go with the Pyrenees not well known for grenache but there was no need to worry. The fruit came from organic vineyards planted by Rhone Valley superstar Michel Chapoutier which made great wines some years back. It is a bright cherry red colour and beautifully user friendly Grenache style with sweet cranberry and raspberry fruits, a dusting of dried herbs, baked earth and ground spice in the mix too. The palate is then surprisingly concentrated with meaty, red liquorice flavours and sandy tannins underlying fleshy fruits before a long finish. Lots to love here and hard to put down after just one glass.
