- 90+ Point Wines
Inky black in color, the wine has flavors and aromas dominated by black current, spice and cured meats with a touch of coffee from low toast barrels. There's an underlying minerality throughout with the distinct iron quality that schist delivers. The palate is pure and powerful, but has structure and a cohesive backbone.
The label helps give the wine a sense of place, emphasizing the unique black schist soil of Maury, which is what makes the wines in this region so particular. In each case, there are 3 different close-up photos (4 of each per case) of the black schist rock that Grenache struggles to grow out of. As we note on the back label, "a blood from a stone, if ever there was".
96% Grenache, 4% Syrah
