Winemaking Team Notes: "This family-owned domaine is managed by two brothers, Serge and Thierry Baret, who along with their father, cultivate 35 hectares of vineyards. The domaine, which is located 15 km from the Mediterranean Sea, dates back to 1748. The vineyards are planted right at the edge of a plateau, where there are deep alluvial gravel deposits from the Rhône River — a mixture of granite and limestone pebbles.

The seemingly incongruous, and almost surreal symbol of the Nimes region, is a crocodile chained to a palm tree. The symbol originally appeared on a roman coin. The crocodile is used to symbolize Egypt - chained to a palm tree to indicate its defeat and occupation by Rome. To this day the city of Nîmes, and the surrounding region, uses the crocodile chained to a palm tree as their insignia.

Tasting Notes: Fruity aromas of candied cherry with notes of spices and violet are expressed on a structure that is full of suppleness and finesse."

Terry's Advice: Drinking way above its price point - get it while its hot!
