Tasting Notes

Such a pleasure to hold a wine in a glass that emulates the region it comes from. Great aromatic intensity and vibrancy: morello cherries, black fruits and spices. The palate is racy and elegant. Although this is drinking beautifully now with plenty of youthful fruit on show, there's no hurry: it has the structure to allow this to be left in the cellar for at least a decade where it will mellow into something even more beautiful. We've tasted them with 10 years+, and these are the real deal.

More Info

To find a producer making this quality that was hitherto unknown is a dream come true. I still can't believe our luck. The secret is that, all along, the wine has been made at the cellar of the Perrins of Chateau de Beaucastel. But the terroir is phenomenal, and so is the attention to detail in the vineyards. The flavours are just amazing. The timing was impeccable - as the winery is just transforming from being a hobby of Jean-Louis Giornal to a business run by his daughter Florence and her husband Thomas.
