Deep red color with hints of terracotta. Powerful on the nose, marked by cooked strawberry, blackcurrant and wild herbs. The first impression is supple and subtle, growing into a full and well-structured expression on the palate and ending with a long aromatic finish dominated by notes of dark figs, blackberries and spices.

Winemaker's Notes:

The mountainous foothills and expansive plains of the Domaine Saint- Félix des Toureilles are exceptionally beautiful, and set in an ideal location for winegrowing. Its close proximity to the Mediterranean Sea allows for a lower temperature harvest, which lets the aromas in the fruit preserve. The deep red color of this Saint-Chinian blend is complimented by hints of terracotta, cooked strawberries, and wild herbs. Terroir: Relatively poor clay-limestone soil, naturally limiting the yield. The Syrah vines are planted on a plateau of 330 feet above sea level, the Grenache and Mourvèdre vines are on a hillside facing south, in one of Saint-Chinian’s most precocious regions.
