Grapes: Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah
Colour – Intense ruby colour with garnet glints.
Nose – Very elegant with complex aromas of red berries, warm spices and dry forest floor.
Palate – Mouth warming and unctuous, its palate follows through from the nose with hints of cinnamon and red peppercorns married with ripe wild berries and prunes. The tannins are elegant giving way to a long toasted finish.
Located in the village of Cairanne, Domaine Grosset belonged to Alain Grosset, Laurent Brotte’s father-in-law. The Grosset family has always been very active in the life of the village, especially in the development of its AOC. Domaine Grosset, just below the old town, covers 20ha and has Grenache vines of up to 100 years in age. The vineyard consists of two different types of soil: grey marls with sand, and terraces of sandy clay and stones. The warm, dry Mediterranean climate is perfect for the maturity of the Grenache.
