TASTING NOTE: Crafted using the saignée method, this is a blend of mostly Grenache and Rolle, with a dash of Syrah. Part of the blend underwent barrel fermentation and ageing. The Rolle is sourced from a hillside site planted in volcanic soil, which is reflected in the wine's mineral note. Impressive flower and berry notes with a lovely mineral aspect. A good match for ham or grilled chicken dishes. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2016) Price $ 18.95
