This is a seriously bosky infusion of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, but what gives the wines their superb individuality and paregoric purity is an adherence to organic principles in the vineyard for qualitative reasons. The culture biologique involves spraying distillations of herbs instead of insecticides, ploughing back leaf cuttings to aerate the bauxite-rich soil. The wine is rich in natural aromas: the classic bouquet des garrigues of lavender, rosemary and thyme as well as more animal nuances of smoked beefand reduced gravy. The palate is gripping; like all great wines there seems to be something different in every mouthful.
