Domaine du Jas d'Esclans Cru Classe AC (Provence)
Aged for three years in large oak barrels, from traditional Provencal grapes, it has a lovely deep red colour and rich weighty body. New owner Matthieu de Wulf's estate is one of only 23 in the region to have been awarded Cru Classe status. An aristocratic wine at a plebeian price.
Grape varieties: Cinsault/Grenache/Mourvedre/Syrah
"Rich and at the same time silky tannins, with hints of blackcurrant, blackberry and pepper. Exceptional."
SILVER MEDAL - AVIGNON 2004
Bottle Closure: Natural Cork
