LE GRAND CROS

L'Esprit de Provence Red

An intense ruby and slightly garnet red. The nose is intense and complex combining notes of dark fruit, green olive, earth and stewed blackberry. The mouth is first round and supple. Sweet spicy aromas accompany the integrated and quality tannins very harmoniously. Dark fruit tones and hints of white pepper and dark berries compliment the delightful body. This 2014 is both generous and refined. Decant before enjoying.

 
The 2019 vintage had a mild and pleasant winter, an early spring followed by a hot and very dry summer, which caused a blockage in the physiology of the vine. It therefore took patience to wait for the grapes to fully ripen. Small yields but strong potential for the harvest.
Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Prime rib in a salt crust, braised lamb, mushroom-based dishes, tomato stew.

ESPRIT DE PROVENCE

A fine vintage in the southern vineyards.

This wine is complete, combining the seduction of Syrah with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Syrah et de cabernet pour ce rouge ouvert à l’aération sur les petits fruits mûrs (myrtille, cassis) et la violette agrémentés de notes animales et épicées. En bouche, il se révèle charnu et généreux en fruit, avec toujours un trait épicé. Encore un brin fermes, les tanins devraient s’affiner avec la garde.

Eye: intense black cherry. Nose: concentrated, graphite, undergrowth, blackcurrant, ripe red fruits, notes of pepper, menthol note, finesse. Palate: frank attack, amplitude and power with a nice plot of tight and solid tannins. Conclusion: a wine of high potential, built around Cabernet Sauvignon and which must absolutely wait; For the game. A very good success.

Darkly fragrant. Dry and spicy, fresh dry thyme blowing through toasty black fruit. A touch of vanilla. Good balance and good polish on those tannins.
