The purity of Mourvèdre
Freshness and elegance are the signature of this 100% Mourvèdre wine, made without any tricks. The Thyrsus cuvée is a delicious wine with a rare varietal purity. Made from a combination of details that are all important, this cuvée is aged for 4 months in terracotta amphora. It is made from vines located on north-facing limestone scree slopes and is named after Thyrsus, the sceptre of Bacchus that embodies prosperity, fertility and hedonism.

Tasting notes
With an incarnate appearance and purple tints, its rich and opulent nose reveals aromas of small forest fruits, blackcurrant and raspberry supported by spicy notes of black pepper and violet. The generous and crisp tannins of this cuvée leave a subtle mineral note on the finish and a surprising freshness for such a southern wine.

James Suckling : 93/100 "Lovely and perfumed nose expressing aromas of plums, spiced cherries, forest berries, white pepper, warm earth and baking spices. Medium body with finely grained tannins. It’s textural with plenty of energy and vivacity at the center and a focused character developing on the palate. Balanced and flavorful with good focus towards the long finish. Mourvedre in amphora. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
