The wine shows moderate to deep ruby red colour, with an almost purple hue indicative of its youth. A complex and rich mix of aroma’s, including black cherry, tapenade (black olive puree) crab apple, plum, cranberry and stewed strawberry fruit, with subtle licorice and mint. On the palate, the wine mirrors the nose, although the fruits tend to show a little more of a black nature than the pretty nose would imply. Some salty, black licorice notes on the finish, as well as a bit of alcoholic weight (14.5%).
It’s quite good with meat cooked in sauce, game, chocolate dessert, red meat, couscous, tajines with dried apricots, and duck with apple.
Third Party Reviews
Organic since 2008, and now biodynamic as well. Good fruit. Half or a bit more is sold in bulk. The 2015 Massif d’Uchaux bore a good, biodynamic virtue, naked clarity, a **** wine. John Livingston-Learmonth
