Deep ruby. Ripe raspberry, cherry liqueur, violet and a hint of garrigue on the deeply perfumed nose. Fleshy, appealingly sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering plush red and blue fruit flavors and a subtle note of candied licorice that builds in the glass. Becomes more energetic with air and finishes on a sweet red berry note, showing powerful thrust, harmonious tannins and impressive persistence. (Aug17)

Located 350 meters above sea level, Clos Derriere Vielle was acquirred by Yves Gras in 1994. After a lot of hard work Yves restored the narrow terraced vineyards. Each grape variety was planted on a terrace to meet its demand for water: Syrah in damp soils, Mourvèdre in stony ones and Grenache in transitional zones. On the limestone soils of the Cretaceous, the wine develops a fine bouquet of fresh fruits and delicate, floral notes, supported by mineral freshness and fine tannins.
