And for a more robust read,

Who doesn't like an elegant red wine made in a prestigious Cotes du Rhone Villages appellation and in this case without sulphites added? Get this red wine and savour expressive aromas of ripe red and black berry fruits, gentle spice and hints of cherries.

It is very smooth on the palate, you can taste plenty of body (read: mouthfeel) and structure (read: complexity). Great flavours of blackberry and cherry and a hint of herb, quite an intense finish without overtaking your meal. Great job to create a balanced and complex red wine.

This wine is from the stable of Domaine Montmartel and is a consistent award-winning wine from the region.

100% Syrah grown biodynamically on the southern Rhône hillsides around the village of Valréas.
