Clos des Grillons
Tavel - 2019 - Nicolas Renaud - Magnum
A very deeply coloured rosé, or is it red? I’d vote red given the notes of wild strawberries, sage, garrigue, and Sichuan pepper... Palate: powerful, balanced, round, and fruity… with a spicy finish.

A blend of 2/3 Cinsault 1/3 Grenache, from 35-year-old vines grown on limestone soils. As Mother Nature was not very kind to Nico a little while back, he looked to this region to purchase grapes, providing him the opportunity for encounters with new terroirs and vignerons.
