{biodynamic) 50% Grenache, 50% Merlot

RED & BLACK BERRIES, PLUMS, SPICE & HERBS

Pays d'Herault wines are a bit of a wild card in Languedoc, permitting all sorts of grapes usually associated with Rhone, or Bordeaux, or Provence - in this case, Grenache and Merlot. Full of Grenache's brambly red berries, spice, and garrigue, complemented by Merlot's plum, gentle cocoa, and soft tannins; meeting in the middle with ripe black cherries. Organic farming, natural yeast fermentation, and minimal cellar intervention - this is what happens when you respect the wine by respecting the land. Pure magic.

Serving suggestion: Light enough to start your meal w/ charcuterie, brie, & bread. Rich enough to carry through to your main course of herb-crusted roast lamb w/ buttery new potatoes. And refreshing afterwards, when you retire to the patio and listen to the cicadas sing from the trees.
