The first hectare of vines was planted on the Domaine Grand Nicolet property in 1875. The winery was established in 1926 and further plantings of Grenache and Carignan were made, replacing cereal crops. The present owner, Jean Pierre Bertrand purchased the Estate in 1999 which has now expanded to 20 hectares (50 acres) of vines. Rhone super star Philippe Cambie acts as consultant. The 2013 is a blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre sourced from vines with an average age of 45 years old.
A Rich, peppery Rasteau with plenty of grip and structure.
Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red hue. Elevated aromatics of black cherry, liquorice and more subtle black raspberry notes overlay scorched earth and meaty leather like nuances with blackpepper end notes. Full, rich and chewy the palate is filled with black cherry and liquorice flavours followed by some black raspberry, earthy leather, scorched characters and blackpepper. Good grippy back palate with a robust muscular tannin structure firming up the finish and providing an excellent framework. Long aftertaste of peppery black cherry, liquorice and earthy dried meat characters.
Cellar 5-6 years.
