80% Grenache, 20% Syrah – Southern Rhone Valley, France

Winery

Domaine de Boissan is located in Sablet in the Rhône Valley and has been passed down through five generations of winemakers, making it among the oldest in the southern Rhone. Christian Bonfils, with support from his wife Cathy, now guides the nearly 50 hectares of vines here with a wise and restrained eye. Farming practices remain conscientious of the effects upon the earth. Only organic fertilizer is added to the soil, which is mechanically maintained, and grapes are handpicked at harvest. Christian prefers to make his wines in a more traditional style; marked by a delicate approach to fruit.

Tasting Notes

This is a rich, lusciously textured blend of Grenache and Syrah sourced from clay and limestone terraces. Aged partially in oak, it's a generous, deeply concentrated wine packed with flavors of crème de cassis and cherry preserve. Softly tannic and spiced by heady notes of clove and vanilla.
