Le Grenache du Bois Saint Jaume 2018
This product is currently sold out.
Warm and round with brambly character. Finishes dry and with a hint of heat and spice, telling of its climate in the Languedoc.
From 70 year old Grenache Noir vines planted right next to the surrounding Saint Jaume forest. After harvest the grapes were de-stemmed and macerated gently for 3 weeks before being pressed into old barrels for a year’s élevage.
Even in a warmer vintage like 2018, this special plot with its elevation and shade from the forest conjures wines unusually elegant for the region. Whilst retaining a little tannin, this is pure fruited and reasonably light on the palate, with a long and complex finish.
