Le Champ des Lunes - Rouge 2007 - Wine

Rouge
Rouge
These wines come from a "sister" property of the Abbaye, in Cucuron (Vaucluse), a village equally steeped in history. Located on an unusual estate called "Grand Luberon", the vineyard enjoys an interesting location on a superbly exposed outcrop. A wine of elegance and power. This cuvée, built around syrah, presents characteristic aromas of leather and liquorice. Tannins are simultaneously strong and silky and this velvety feel gives it a wholly exceptional presence.
