Les Clavelles 2015
The “Les Clavelles” wine is named after a plot of pure grenache on the western slope of the famous Crau plateau. It all began by simply observing the equilibrium of the location, tasting its grapes, and observing the abundance of this corner of the vineyard. The grenache finds balance here, forgetting its strong character to reveal delicacy and finesse while asserting its full-bodied southern character. “Les Cavelles” should be savored alone to appreciate its entirety.
The nose of this 100% Grenache Châteauneuf du Pape is exceptional. It reminds us of a very intense fragrance of asian spices and ripe red and dark berries. As subtle as the leading varietal that compose it, this Cuvée is in the same time, elegant and powerful, deep and energetic, smooth and solid. A very impressive wine !
