The highly quaffable character of this Saint Chinian derives from the floral Syrah, grown on sandstone and chalky clay, the intense soft fruit of the Grenache and the structure of the exceptionally ripe Mourvèdre. It brings together the tulip, the iris, the Lilly of the valley and other bulb flowers expressions and a stony side which reminds the storm rain on hot stones.
