  • 14/20 Bettane & Desseauve


Dark red, exhuberant nose of cocoa, spice and red fruit. Complex, ample and rich on the palate with a distinct character provided by the sandy marl terroir. The finish is mineral and bright due in part to the high-altitude vineyards.

Harvesting started the 20th of September for the Syrahs and the 27th of September forthe Grenaches.
