An explosion of super juicy fruit.

Made predominately from 70 year old Grenache vines. Very deep dark red black core with a vibrant dark red hue. Elevated dark raspberry and liquorice scents combine with dark cherry, provincial herb and peppered earth notes. Rich, intense and succulently fruited yet remarkably fresh the palate is drenched with a tidal wave of dark to black raspberry, liquorice and ripe black cherry fruits. Infusions of herbs du Provence, subtle scorched earth and pepper linger underneath. Explosive power and depth. Ripe, slightly chewy tannins finishing very long and super juicy.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 15%

Other Reviews…..
Moving to the two tiny production releases, the 2022 Cairanne Marcel Roche is 100% Grenache from the oldest vines of the estate and is still aging in stainless steel. It has a ripe, spicy, savory, medium to full-bodied style as well as lots of Grenache character in its red and black fruits and Provençal garrigue nuances. It has plenty of structure and is going to benefit from a few years of bottle age.
