From 50-80 yr vines of Domaine Gramenon, this cuvee is one of two bottled by the next generation. The lux cuvee combines finesse and strength, is floral, almost gardenia-like, and fine with racy red fruits, earth, spice and superior tannin structure.

Vivid ruby. Dark berries, cherry and licorice on the fragrant nose and palate. Turns spicier with air, picking up bright clove and cinnamon notes, along with a suave floral quality. Finishes with intense spiciness, leaving notes of bitter cherry and anise behind.
