Owned by Englishman Stephen Cronk and made by English flying winemaker Angela Muir, this blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah is aromatically punchier than many Provence examples, the full fruitiness leaping from the glass, and the palate combining lots of cherry-ripe flavour and red apple juiciness with a fine streak of acidity to freshen the finish. Delish. 88/100.
