Personality: Ruby red in the glass with a pretty amethyst rim. The nose is redolent with smoky notes of cassis, blackberries, dried orange peel, and sweet spice. The palate is a plush and delectable expression of red and black fruits backed by brambly tannins and the wine finishes with a supple dash of orange zest and black pepper. Perfect with all kinds of grilled things!

Vineyard: 20 to 80 years vines on red clay covered in small stones

Making of: The wine undergoes a 3-week maceration and is then stored in enamel-lined tanks for 10 months before it is bottled without fining or filtration.

Winemaker's Note: The name of this vineyard and cuvée comes from the strong presence of Spanish broom plants (Spartium junceum – genet in French), abundant on the site. A single-vineyard with good exposure and a touch of Counoise, an indigenous South-Rhone Valley grape that brings a pleasantly spicy touch to the wine.
