10 hectares of vines. The Chateauneuf is Grenache 60%, Syrah 15%, Mourvedre 10%, and Counoise 5%, from vines 70-100 years old. Aged in large old barrels and barriques for 12-18 months; bottled unfiltered. Plus a bonus real-live tasting note!
From 70-100+ year-old vines in the northern part of the appellation. Farmed with biodynamic methods, destemmed, fermented with native yeast, aged in foudres, with moderate SO2 addition before bottling. Dark ruby robe with only a hint of bricking. At 11 years old, the nose is showing dark plummy fruit, roasted meat, wet stone, licorice, garrigue, and spices. The palate has fairly dense black fruit, giving way to savory herbal and mineral notes. Rich, but fresh and still a bit tannic, this displays a good sense of earthy minerality on the juicy finish. Starting to drink well now, though I'd venture this has a few years yet to really shine. John McIlwain
