About This Wine...
Bright, attractive nose with very precise, focused black fruits. Good palate. Some smoky tobacco and black fruits in the mouth.
“Owned by the Quartironi, this small family business is uniquely located in a small hamlet called “Le Priou”. A treasure of knowledge has been passed down through the generations of this family who work the schist soils planted with old Carignan, Grenache and Syrah vines.
As a sensual tribute to this intriguing place, try Domaine des Pradels “aux vieux gobelets”. The wine’s name is inspired by the training system used to prune the vines. It’s a medium-bodied approachable wine, with aromas of pure white pepper giving way to a savoury fruitiness that is both assertive and ripe. The finish is medium long with a characteristic spicy bite.”
