Grenache (70%), Carignan (20%), Grenache Gris (5%), Grenache Blanc (5%)
This is our rare, single-vineyard wine, which is only produced in the best years, and in 2013 only 1,144 bottles were produced (and only 880 shipped to the UK)
Eyes: Les Genoux is less intensely coloured than the regular cuveé, as it contains 10-15% white and pink grapes.
Nose: The nose is more complex that our main wine and is more perfumed. Layers of wild strawberry, plum and cherry with wafts of rosemary and fennel. There’s also hints of slatey minerals and chocolate powder.
Mouth: Initially soft, and lush, the palate unveils an array of crushed stones, herbs, and ripe damson and currant flavours.
Recommended food pairings: Excellent on its own as a ‘vino di meditazione’ (best appreciated with a good friend), Les Genoux is also a wonderful match for charcuterie (especially finnochiona, or fennel salami), and the perfumed, elegant style makes it pretty versatile.
Made in Languedoc-Roussillon, France.
