Classed among the elite of the great La Clape wines, this highly characteristic marvel delivers a show of flavours with formidable balance. A dark purple robe and a very expressive bouquet betrays the supremacy of the Syrah and a 10 month period in oak barrels. Everything is in balance, the mouth opening on black fruits with nuances of vanilla, enhanced by silky tannins. A complex and elegant wine with a very subtle woodiness. To be enjoyed immediately or after a few years in the cellar, accompanied by an Osso Bucco or a tournedos of beef.
