AOP Les Baux de Provence Tasting notes: A lovely, brilliant flaming red colour that should be allowed to fill out into your glass. Intense nose with an alluring perfume of spices, pine and violet. A hearty attack with round and polished tannins characterized by an explosion of spices, liquorice and black cherry on the palate with a lingering length of stewed red fruits. This wine should be lovingly combined with walnut-crusted pork roast tenderloin and cooked asparagus. Serve at 17 degrees. Production: 25hl/ha. Wine making process: Hand harvested. Indigenous yeast fermentation. Blend: 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache Noir. Alcohol by volume: 13%
