Sourced from the devigorated soils of western Greenock, Les Amis is a testament to what only the most fastidious farming can achieve - purity, intensity and finesse.
A multi layered perfume of violets, kirsch and concentrated red berry aromas with a succulent, dense and vibrant fruit intensity. The concentration, poise and elegance is perfectly balanced and typical of this unique terroir.
Revealing a savoury elegance in its youth, the Les Amis will continue to build in complexity for many years to come.
The 2019 Vintage
The growing season was defined by a continuously warm to hot summer with no effective rainfall, wind and hail at flowering, and followed with three major frosts - resulting in an earlier and much smaller harvest than average. These tough conditions produced smaller clusters of intensely dark berries with thick fleshy skins contrasted against brown mature stalks. Whilst yields were down, once these vineyards were fermenting in our cellar the concentration of colour, tannin and aroma of the 2019 vintage was revealed.
Les Amis Grenache 2019
Alluring and seductive aromatic red fruits such as sour cherry mulberry, red currant and wild raspberry. Secondary notes of Chinese five spice, sarsaparilla, star anise are balanced by wet earth and cinnamon spice. Cleansing acidity drives the finish fresh with plenty of mid palate texture. Old vine Grenache complexities and full-bodied depth with firm but balanced drying tannins give the wine plenty of time to mature in the cellar for 8-15 years
