From three sites on the Plateau de Chassis in the village of Mercurol. In the shadow of Hermitage, the land opens up here and there are many fruit orchards along- side the vineyards. Away from the famous steep slopes, the terroir is a mix of sandy clay and round river stones (galets roules). 100% whole cluster fermentation, followed by 18 months of aging in 5-6 year old barrels. Lush fruit and gentle tannins.

93 Points Josh Raynolds:  "Dark bright-rimmed ruby. Vibrant aromas of fresh, spice-tinged dark berries and candied flowers develop a suggestion of olive as the wine opens up. Clean and nervy in style, offering energetic black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a suave touch of Asian spices. Finishes sweet, gently tannic and very long, leaving a note of violet pastille behind."
