Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Counoise

The blend is only 45% Grenache this year, thanks to the variety’s susceptibility to mildew. The resulting wine has a dark red berry profile with fennel and white pepper spice. It’s poised, despite the wine’s concentration, garrigue aromas combining with liquorice and black cherries. There’s a silkiness to the palate; the fine-grained tannins feeling incredibly well-integrated, even in the wine’s youth. The finish is generously long. Drink 2022-2040+.

A father-and-son team, Paul and Vincent Avril run the firm and are already established as one of the very finest wine making-partnerships in the southern Rhône. The domaine's situation is not helped by having plots of vines scattered throughout the area, but this does mean that they can spread the length of harvesting over a longer period of time and get the very best from each of their sites.
