Domaine De Trevallon VDP Bouches Du Rhone 1997
This cuvée is an equal-part blend of Syrah and Cabernet-Sauvignon, and an absolute must-have bottle from Provence. A lesson in straightness and complex, harmonious aromas which marry ripe red fruits, iodine flavours and hints of the garrigue. It is perfectly balanced in the mouth with a crazily complex, persistent finish. Suitable for cellaring, it is best to decanter before serving, alongside boldly flavoured food.
