A new wine, and producer to me, the vineyard was previously used to produce Domaine La Milliere. Here you find a fresh, strawberry, underbrush, and floral wine that is medium-bodied, fresh, sweet, pure, and refined, as well as forward, supple and ready-to-drink on release. The wine blends Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Drink from 2024-2031.
