Born under an Osage orange tree, the Cuvée Maclura Côtes du Rhône calls for the greediness of the fruit revealing a blend of spices with delicate tannins. Designed with respect for southern traditions, this cuvée is like the cuisine of our grandmothers, generous & full of life. Deep red, shiny in appearance. Aromas of blackcurrant and liquorice. Elegant, supple finish. Pairs well with roasted red meats, cold meats, tripailles.

A blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Maclura is a dark-fruited wine loaded with scents of black olives, cracked pepper and espresso. Sturdy and savory in character, it's medium to full-bodied, admirably concentrated and intense, with a dose of dusty tannins on the finish.
