les Fiefs d'Aupenac rouge Saint Chinian Roquebrun 2017 Grenache/Shiraz blend
"Les Fiefs d'Aupenac" rouge, Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun 2017. 60% Shiraz, 20% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre.
This is where the pedal starts hitting the metal with the ultra-stony, schist-rich soils of the rocky slopes of Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun massively accentuating the area’s signature perfume lift and flinty minerality of the palate. Very dark in colour. The aromatics are steeped in oodles of fruit, leather, liquorice, and herbs galore. The palate is medium to full bodied but still very fresh. The tannin grip is fine, suave, determined, and long.
