A very traditional Cotes du Rhone in style, with a clear lean towards that lovely, deep Grenache character. Grenache 50%, Syrah 40%, Mourvedre 10%. Lovely bright nose with hints of cranberry and mint. On the palate, a gorgeous soft Grenache texture, fresh and juicy with an attractive fruit-forward style. Delicious and approachable.


Tasting Notes

Owners Jacques and Anne Callet took over the Chateau in 1996, vowing to return the estate to it's former glory - the dizzy days of the 17th century when the estate and vineyards were run by the Archbishop of Avignon. An awful lot has happened since then - a full renovation of their "humble castle" and restoration of the cellars, an extensive replanting scheme and a full conversion to organics, gaining their Ecocert in 2010. 2012 saw the arrival of Philippe Cambie - former rugby player turned oenologist and Grenache obsessive, as well as being Robert Parker's much applauded "best oenologist in the world" in 2010.
