Only just pink – this is so pale I had to examine in carefully in several different lights to establish that it is not a deep-coloured white. First-ever wine made by Englishman Tom Hills. Claude Gros consults and wines are made by the well-travelled Amélie Czerwenka of the northern Rhône. 45% Cinsault, 40% Grenache,15% Syrah on schist in the far north of the appellation. In certified organic conversion. Their biggest production at 9,500 bottles. Free sulphur just 13mg/l! Pure as a mountain stream. Lovely smooth fruit and a certain light smokiness (hints of Provence) but with the muscular tang of St-Chinian schist. Admirably long. Quite a find!
