Roussilon, situated between the hills of corbieres and the Pyrenees mountains has one of the sunniest aspects for wine production in France. Made from the indigenous grape varieties of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache the wine displays that big warm southern character with subtle oak ageing and an underlay of sweet spice.

Jam-packed with blackcurrant and damson flavours with a light herbal mint and toasty oak spice. There is a rich and round mouth feel with supple tannins. This smooth, fruity wine is the perfect match for grilled red meats, chicken and tomato-based pasta dishes.
