A dark colored blend of Négrette and Syrah, this is a concentrated and perfumed wine from Philip Grant, an Irishman who bought the estate in 2008. It is full of ripe plum fruits and bold tannins that give shape to what is a super-rich wine. The wood aging has cast a smooth patina over the fruit and given an extra complexity. This fine wine is ready to drink.
