This Grenache is one of the purest expressions of the varietal in the Languedoc. There is a great balance of dark red fruit with leathery, smoky notes. Aged for 36 months in stainless steel to preserve freshness. 2012 was not an easy vintage due to high temperatures in the summer months. After a few years of patience, the result is marvellous, and this vintage is now ready to be opened!
Alain Chabanon is one of the leading estates in the Languedoc and is consistently making truly unique wines that have been a great inspiration for the region.
