Varietal Grenache and Syrah
Region France: Languedoc-Roussillon
Notes "Despite having reached a level of over-ripeness, Jean-Marc coaxed the fermentation along and discovered that while rich and decadent, the wine also maintained a juicy freshness. Now La Narassa is made intentionally in a semi-ripasso style by harvesting Grenache (70%) from Maury in several passes choosing only the ripest clusters, and combining it with Syrah (30%) from their highest vineyard site at 540m, which always ripens late in the season at only 12.5% potential alcohol." (Winemaker's Notes)
