A concentrated and structured wine with plenty of cedar wood, pepper and ripe, autumnal berry fruit on the nose.

Dark ruby colour. Once on the palate, you are bombarded with flavours: raspberries, cassis, thyme, rosemary and plums. Velvety and complex.

This is from Provence, a region in the South of France.

It is a rich, spicy red with deep, savoury damson and blackberry fruit and herbal notes too.

The wine is made from a blend of local grape varieties, as well as some international ones, such as Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Producer Information

Not content with owning his own fantastic Champagne House, Bruno Paillard bought Chateau des Sarrins in 1995 and immediately set about revitalising the property. The name of the property is said to stem from an invading Saracen who was killed, and buried in his golden armour, on the property in the 14th Century.
Recognising the potential of the estate's oldest vines, Bruno left these in place whilst also planting new vineyards and building a modern, gravity-fed cellar in which to make these wonderful Provencal wines.
The secret to the estate's success lies in the fact the vines are planted up in the hills (at around 250m altitude) rather than down on the valley floor. This extra bit of height means a cooler temperature, especially at night, preserving the grapes' natural acidity and fruit flavours and thus more elegant wines.
