Montpeyroux is very highly regarded and is widely expected to become an AOP in the next few years. This is made from very low-yielding old vines, between 40 and 60 years old; 60% Grenache with Carignan, Syrah and Mourvèdre, raised in a mix of old Burgundy barrels and in 600l. demi-muids, traditionally used in the Rhône valley. A pretty raspberry colour, with a rich fruit nose and a little oak, there's sophisticated smoothness on the palate and good length. Great class.
