The Côtes-du-Rhône from Clos Saint Antonin comes from the younger vines on the property – between 30-50 years old! This cuvée is always dominated by Grenache (~80%) with Syrah and Mourvèdre making up the remainder of the blend. Originally this cuvée was aged in concrete and foudre but starting in 2018 Isabelle has decided that to achieve as naked an expression of Grenache as possible it is fermented and aged without SO2 it in neutral 600L French oak demi-muids.
-Winemaker's Notes

90 pts James Suckling

A deep and rich feel here with a swathe of ripe forest berries and some herbal nuances, too. The palate has fine-grained texture and a plush, even build. Drink now.
