This wine is deep ruby in colour with aromas of redcurrant, blackberry and black pepper. On the palate, supple tannins and a juicy fruit core are complemented by a floral lift, provided by the 5% of Viognier.

Blending from various vineyards gives the wine complexity as well as consistency. The granite soils provide structure and minerality. Some vineyards contain polished galets that retain the heat of the sun during the day which is reflected back to the vine at night. This effect provides perfect ripeness, a quality that can be tasted in this round and smooth wine.

Maison & Domaines Les Alexandrins was established by Nicolas Jaboulet, formerly of the eponymous winery in Tain, the Perrin family from Château de Beaucastel, winemaker Guillaume Sorrel and viticulturalist Alexandre Caso in 2015. The partnership of this ‘micro-négociant’ stemmed from a long-standing friendship, a shared love of gastronomy and an aim to create wines that represent the best of their appellations. Now run solely by Nicolas, Alexandre and winemaker Benoît Busseuil, Maison Les Alexandrins is the négociant side of the business and these wines incorporate fruit purchased from a selection of the top growers in each appellation of the Northern Rhône, whereas the fruit for the Domaine Les Alexandrins wines comes entirely from estate-owned vineyards in Saint Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage.
