Made in homage to Etienne Gonnet, the founder of the estate, this wine is only produced in top years (there was no 2002, for example). Old vines give great concentrated fruit, dominated by the ripe, earthy Grenache, with a touch of sophistication from Syrah and Mourvèdre. This is well-made wine, ripe, delicious and likely to age. Imported by MacArthur Beverages.
