    This comes from four lieu dits and 20 year old vines in the gneissose ‘terroir blond’ in the centre of the appellation just south of Ampuis. Aged for 21 months in new to 15 year old barrels and demi-muids. The nose offers black fruits, violets, olives and pepper, and the palate is then supple and elegant, with similar flavours and fine grained tannins. For drinking now to 2024.
