The colour is intense, deep and steady. First nose remarkably fresh, it shows maturity with aromas of black fruits and warm spices. We find the soils of origin are revealed with floral notes (violet) which are lightly smoky. We can find the same aromatic notes on the Northern Côtes-du-Rhône soils, which are the birthplace of the Syrah. The palate shows maturity with aromas of black fruits and warm spices.

Coming from higher elevation granite soils and just about all Syrah, the 2018 Côtes Du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde L'Esquerda offers stunning granite character with its cassis and black raspberry fruit intermixed with lots of wet stone, ground pepper, white flowers, and hints of truffle. Deep, medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure and elegant on the palate, with light tannins, it's going to keep for upwards of a decade.

A 60-40 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2018 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde l'Esquerda looks potentially outstanding. Crushed stone accents give this full-bodied red a sense of austerity, while the blueberry and cherry fruit is bold and muscular, yielding to a long, mouthwatering finish.

Meaty undertones flank the Damson plum and dark cherry flavors of this powerful red with details of savory spice, mineral and wild herb filling in along the polished finish. Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. Drink now through 2025. 2,500 cases made, 800 cases imported.
