Wine Maker: Ad Vinum
Region: Gard, France
Grape: A blend of 40% Grenache and 40% Cinsault
Taste note: The balance is made up of Grenache Blanc, Picpoul and Clairette from forty year old vines planted over sand. The grapes spend three days together on skins, before being pressed off to spend the winter on their lees in vat. A deep ruby in colour, this is compact and elegant, with the power and poise to suggest it has a very long life ahead.
