Les Clavelles 2017
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.
Crimson red color with purple hints. Powerful and complex nose on ripe dark berries (blueberry) with notes of ‘garrigue’ herbs and reminiscence of floral aromas (blackcurrant buds). The palate is rich and rounded with red berries 'compotée' flavours (cherries), tinged with scent of wild meditarrenean herbs, (laurel, thyme), liquorice and peppery spices. The finish is both elegant and powerful, deep and energetic, smooth and balanced. An atypical grenache cuvée with a strong personality !
