2014 Cairanne, Les Douyes, Domaine de l'Oratoire Saint Martin

Sold Out

Clay-limestone soils and 50-year-old vines are the progenitors of this exemplary blend, which is made up of 60 percent Grenache, and 40 percent Mourvèdre, with, unusually, no Syrah in 2014. Pumping over for 12 days, followed by nine month’s ageing, have yielded a gloriously fruity wine, with hints of soft spice and leather in the background and spicy subtle tannins even further in the background. Drink 2018-2020. Simon Field MW – Wine Buyer
