    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cool earth is the first thing you smell when you open a bottle of the '08 Cigare Volant, followed by the comforting fragrance of peppermint and raspberry. Tasting the wine, one is struck by its bright acidity and black fruit – mulberry, cassis and black raspberry – coupled with a discreet earthiness (telegraphed, as it were, in the nose). The tannins are gentle, but the wine still possesses a strong upright spine; every element stands in very exquisite balance.

    Utterly delicious and approachable now – especially brilliant with game, lamb and roasted meats – the wine will undoubtedly repay bottle ageing for many (10-15) years hence.

    Blend: 45% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre, 7% Cinsault, 5% Carignane

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sleek and engaging, with ripe, supple, polished cherry, currant and dried berry flavors that glide across the palate, ending with gravel and spice box. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignane. Drink now through 2021.
