Seriously good wine from an estate that all the critics are watching. Unfined and unfiltered pure southern red.

Our first, and eagerly-awaited, certified organic red Saint Chinian. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault, aged for 12 months in stainless steel on lees. This is a fruit-forward expression of the schist terroir which will stand up to a hearty meal of game, duck or beef, but also make very pleasant quaffing, preferably with some fine charcuterie.

Critic Reviews:

And here’s the latest review from Tamlyn Currin for the Jancis Robinson website, 04/12/20:

Everything I want a St-Chinian to be! Deeply perfumed, the timbre of pure fruit resonating in full tone through every corner of your mouth. A wine that demands a full-body response with tannins so silky that they slip out the glass, slip off your tongue, slip through the fruit. Ripe red fruit with a fresh pomegranate sharpness and texture, so juicy your mouth waters as the wine hits your lips and yet not simple. Tingling, long and so delicious that I had goosebumps rill down my spine. Tom Hills may have made this to be an easy quaffing wine, but it’s so much more than that. I have eight more Languedoc reds to taste and all I want to do is abandon my post and go sit by the fire with an inappropriately large glass of this. (TC)
