This beautiful 2011 will break that “Natural wine can’t age” myth. The nose makes you feel like that you’ve paid off your mortgage. 11 years old, the wine features a beautiful tuile colour. The palate is a festival. Old wood, a bit of minerality, dried fruit, lots of dried herb, Provençal herbs, black olives and a touch of sun dried tomato. 

Lovely pick up on the leathery, slightly gamy finish with surprising length and spiciness. As the integrated tannins fade away, the finish is extended by the bright acidity of the Syrah.
