About: Cuvée "Why?" A big blend of five varietals in varying measures provides a beautiful blackcurrant nose, and prominent notes of delicious toasted bread. A suppleness and particularity comes from the small amount of Chenanson blended in, and with the perfect acidity this suave cuvée offers an aromatic bouquet and lovely long finish. Complexity and structure comes from the old vine Grenache and Carignan. Pourquoi? C'est très bien! All grapes are hand harvested and de-stemmed before spontaneous fermentation and then 5 months in concrete. A very small dose of suplhur at bottling.
