Rich, complex and well-balanced red blend
Expresses itself delightfully with a rich and ample nose of black berries and warm spices. Well rounded, finely textured and a juicy palate complimented by a long, rich and savoury finish.

STORY BEHIND THE WINE
The Pujol estate sites around the foohills of Montagne Noire (Black Mountain) in the Languedoc. While this location may sound rather ominous, this producer's wines are quintessentially Mediterranean in flavour.
The Gaillard family have been farming this region since their great-great-grandfather, Louis Biscan, worked 5 hectares of vineyards and they now farm over 100 hectares.
With a wide range of wine and styles in their portfolio this Grand Reserve is Syrah-dominant, brooding and incredibly food-friendly.
