AOP Duche d’Uzès – 90% Syrah and 10% black Grenache.
Ancient Syrah and black Grenache vines, facing the sun, and sheltered from the wind of the Mistral, are grown on long established soil. And then, when the optimum maturity is reached, harvested most carefully by hand.
A wine that evokes the grand vintages. It undergoes almost two years of ageing in huge oak barrels. Firmly woody, L’ Absolu is all about intensity and aromatic richness with touches of dark berries, liquorice, spices and damp soil.
L’ Absolu is best suited to festive meals with rich dishes cooked in sauce, spiced red meat, and strong aged cheeses.
Not for the feint-hearted!
