A blend of Grenache Noir and Mourvèdre bursting with red berries and bright acidity. Light floral notes, with chocolate, figs and quince. A juicy, pleasure-filled wine.

Ludovic Engelvin grew up in the Langeudoc, but is most heavily influenced by his time working alongside Didier Dagueneau and the wines of the world he tasted while working as a sommelier. Ludovic believes in growing only the right variety on the right terroir, and declines to use Syrah, instead focusing mainly on Grenache and Mourvèdre. For his signature wine, each year Ludovic changes the blend, and the label. This year the artwork was painted by Ludovic himself. Ludovic says this wine’s slogan is “Drink her, punish her!”, referencing a fleeting romantic relationship he had in the summer of 2013. The relationship ended, but inspired this racy cuvée. Only 1800 bottles produced.

Vinification: Made from 50-60 year-old Grenache and Mourvèdre vines growing on sandstone soils. The grapes are harvested by hand, and vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks using only indigenous yeasts. Fermentation lasts one month in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then left to mature for 12 to 18 months in old Burgundian barrels and stainless steel. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small amount of Sulphur added for stability.

Match it with: Charcuterie, pork cooked with cherries, chocolate mousse.
