Les Clavelles 2019
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.
Light ruby color with garnet hints. The nose exhales lots, making the bouquet very complex: black fruits (cassis and plum), rose petals and in the same time herbs, spices (sandal wood). On the palate same complexity: the wine is both generous on dark berries, full bodied, concentrated on cedar, orange peel typical of Châteauneuf du Pape, but also delicate and classy on floral notes. The high quality of tanins, even young, the incredible lush and long finish, reinforce the feeling of living a unique and special moment !
