Le Cirque – named after the vast, amphitheatre-shaped bowl of vineyards stretching north towards Vingrau, the wines represent phenomenal values, and perfectly reflect the rugged, wind-swept terroir in which they are grown.
Syrousse – a great expression of ripe, Roussillon, Syrah. Inspired by Tautavel’s 450,000 year pre-historic past and wealth of old-vines and schistous soils, this approachable, terroir-driven wine is sure to please.
