Les Violettes 2011
Vin de Pays de Vaucluse
Les Violettes is a new wine from this excellent and biodynamic producer in the southern Rhone Valley. The wine is 100% syrah and has the characteristic dark blue colour of a young syrah. But according to Christine at Montirius the name actually comes from the aromas of violets you find in the wine, not from the colour.
It is a wine rich in flavours but is quite light in structure and body. The fruit is nice and clean, the hallmark of Montirius’ wines.
