(2016) A 50/50 blend of Syrah and Grenache from Beauregard-Mirouze's organic vineyards, there's a creamy red fruit brightness here, a touch of pepper, but also a deeper, more briary aspect. In the mouth it is a little brighter in tone than the more expensive Lauzina cuvée, juicier and more plump red-fruited on the mid-palate, but though the ripe fruit persists, the finish has a hint of similar gravitas, the fine tannins and grip of the acidity giving it some heft and savoury appeal.
