Corbières Rouge, Les Mains sur les Hanches, Domaine Sainte Marie des Crozes

A wine that gained its name from the winemaker’s habit of putting her hands on her hips whilst considering the merits of each tank. A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah harvested from low-yielding vines that are about 60 years old and grown on limestone and chalk; these are gently crushed and barrel-fermented. It has a spicy morello cherry nose with notes of coffee and nutmeg the palate is powerful and balanced with freshness on the finish.
