This is an unheard-of price for a true 'Grande Reserve' from the family-owned Chateau Millegrand, winner of an impressive range of accolades. The fruit (Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre) was hand-picked from 60-year-old vines and gently crushed, before the wine spent a full 12-month slumber in fine oak. Stunning! Deep purple in colour. The nose is intense with exotic, ripe, dark fruit aromas overlaid with notes of cocoa, liquorice and spices. The tannins are soft and voluptuous, the fruit full and rich. Wood maturation gives structure and elegance on the finish. Serve with red or grilled meat, or cheese.
