About

91-93

Notes of cassis, toasted spice, chocolate and licorice all emerge from the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lieu Dit La Narassa, which is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah brought up in demi-muids. This hedonistic, downright sexy, ripe and layered beauty will drink nicely right out of the gate. - Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #230

Product Description:

La Narassa is sourced from the famed black schist soils of the Agly valley in the northern Rousillon near the village of Maury. It is made in a semi-ripasso by harvesting the Grenache in successive passes picking only the ripest clusters. Once at the cellars, the fruit is destemmed and only the best berries are chosen for fermentation after a short pre-fermentation maceration. - Importer Fermentation: Hand harvested, cold pre-fermentation maceration, natural yeast co-fermentation in tank. Aging: 12 months in concrete (80%) and French oak demi-muids (20%)
