From the spectacular French Basque region tucked within the foothills of the Pyrénées.
From schist soils. Lighter, cherry and pomegranate colour. Vinous, gently earthy and gently smoky nose. The palate is bone dry and full of texture and flavour, But there is tannin here, grippy and very dry, little glimpses of roses and red liquorice, a powerful. Very much a food wine this, weight and power despite the low alcohol. Fascinating.
