This cuvée is the intense expression of the magical terroir of Domaine Peter Sichel located at the bottom of the picturesque village of Cucugnan. The depth of its aromas and the racy elegance of its tannins reflect the warmth and sweetness of the South of France.
A very expressive and crunchy nose made up of ripe fruit, blackcurrant, prunes. Elegance and suppleness characterize the palate with a frank attack that melts into a round of aromas of pepper jam and spices. The reminder of a generous sun at altitude in the exquisite finesse of the tannins. A wine that will have many good years ahead of it.

On behalf of AFPOP EA thank you for a great wine tasting. Some interesting wines and ports… some of the ports surprised me as I’m not necessarily a port drinker. Rita was excellent… very easy to listen to and the wines were very easy to drink! Your team were fabulous… nibbles great… overall a successful wine tasting event. Once again, thank you and I’m sure we will see you again soon.
