Rhone Valley, France

80% Grenache, 20% Syrah

This smells and tastes of blueberry, blackcurrant and blackberry with a hint of violets. 

Escaravailles is the name for beetles in the local dialect, Occitan, hence the beetle on the label and on the cork of this bottle; it is also said to be a nickname for black-robed monks that used to tend the vineyards in days gone by.   This small winery, in the same family since 1953, is situated high up in the Rasteau region; its Grenache vines are c. 60 years old and its Syrah vines c. 35 years old.  The aging vines help add to the intensity and complexity of flavours.
