Wine Description

Non Vintage Grenache : Solera from 1999 to 2011 Fermented and aged in vat. 100% grenache Little James is at Saint Cosme the wine of freedom. Our Solera is getting more and more complexity year after year. When we add the current vintage, the solera gains a new element without changing the style... This wine recalls the ancient times when the wine merchants would make wines having only one target: the pleasure. Blending vintages can be a great way to make nice wines, if it’s well done. This cuvée shows how the grenache can be a «chameleon-grape» which has the ability to take many different forms. But it always keeps its sense of softness, fruit and texture. The 2012 bottlings will contain 50% of 2011, blended with all the vintages back to 1999. Cherry, spices from the souk, gingerbread, strawberry compote, coal, garrigue.
