This wine boasts a lovely deep ruby-red colour and a concentrated bouquet revealing notes of ripe fruit and mild spices. It is a well-structured wine, fleshy on the palate and with hints of liquorice to finish.
La Bastille Rouge is a blend of Carignan and Merlot grapes and offers a fruity palate with a spicy finish. A good introduction to French reds it is well suited to red meat dishes but can be enjoyed on its own.
Old vine Grenache grown on decomposed black schist with a limestone sub soil, that produces something amazing. Ethereal, sublime and surprisingly fesh, this achieves a level of finesse akin to fine red Burgundy. Remarkable, special, very good indeed.
