Saint Jean du Barroux La Pierre Noir (750ml)
Saint Jean du Barroux wines express the terroir of the lower slopes of the famous Mont Ventoux near the road between Le Barroux and the Roman town of Vaison la Romaine. The talented Philippe Gimel keeps his yields very low in order to concentrate fruit flavour and de-stems every hand picked bunch. A lot of attention and care goes into crafting these wines and this results in wines that are pure with fine tannins and lots of flavour.
A blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and the rest Carignan and Cinsault. The wine’s bouquet is reminiscent of some great Rhone reds. An intense melange of floral and dark fruit aromas with a velvety smooth palate and a long elegant finish.
