This is what The Wine Gang had to say about the 2014. The 2017 is perhaps the best vintage yet of this, our best selling red.
"Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Carignan from gnarly old bush vines bring a real depth of flavour to this luminous and lively Roussillon red blend, so keen and fresh with its ripe raspberry and mulberry juiciness seasoned with dried herbs and pepper, a touch of welcome chew and grip making this a fine match for fat, herby Toulouse sausages"
Goes with: Casseroles and stews, charcuterie and cold meats"
