GENEROUS – COMPLEX – LENGTH - DEPTH

Here’s a wine that shows Eric’s concern for the experience that local history can give. In simple terms Serine could be called ‘old Grenache’, these vielles vignes are over 70 years in the soil, and they benefit from his own experience in introducing new methodology - no sulphur and utilising indigenous yeasts in the micro-climate on the edge of the Ardêche, west of the Rhône river. As Eric says, the wine is generous and complex, a product of time and endeavour, and is not released for some four years. It has depth, woodsmoke and dark berries, scents of the forest floor, gentle tannins provide a firmness and grip and a long finish that will give more black fruits and notes of pepper. Eric is doing for this appellation what he did for Brèzeme - this is a wine firmly of its place.
