The Reserve des Armoiries is great value with an all Mediterranean grape blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, Carignan,and Cinsault. The vineyards selected to produce this wine extend over 225 hectares. It relies on diversity and chemistry of soils, grape varieties and the age of the vines. More than five vintages were required to obtain the perfect balance for this cuvee.
The upfront and honest character of the wine with its fruit-filled nose and palate redolent of plums, spice and damsons, all wrapped in a medium-bodied framework of supple character. This wine cries out for similar food matches like loin of lamb, rich meat stews, barbecued ribs - indeed anything vaguely meaty, but pairs wonderfully alongside a wide variety of cheese.
