"This classic Cotes du Rhone offers densely layered black fruit aromas with a characteristic spiciness on the nose. Medium bodied on the palate, with ripe tannins, plenty of black cherry fruit, and a long, lingering finish. Made from 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache. Grapes were fully de-stemmed. Temperature-controlled fermentation in traditional cement tanks, with daily pumpovers. Unoaked." - Importer
"In addition to running the legendary Chateauneuf-du-Pape estate Domaine du Pegau with her father Paul, Laurence Feraud manages a successful negociant wine business under the "Selection Laurence Feraud" label." - Importer
