Certified organic. This blend comes from hillside vines facing south and east with an average altitude of 250 metres, grown on loess/limestone soils. A combination of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan, as well as some Marselan (from some old vines of a rarely seen hybrid that Olivier Klein likes for the acidity it brings to the blend), this is perhaps the spiciest Réméjeanne wine we ship. The grapes are sorted and mostly destemmed before a natural ferment in concrete tanks. The Carignan grapes, however, undergo carbonic maceration. There is little or no sulphur used during vinification, and the wine then spends a year in concrete before bottling. Named after the honeysuckle tree, it’s a supple and airy southern Rhône with notes of mulberry, anise and spice box, sinewy tannins—typical of the limestone-rich soils of Sabran—and a long, vibrantly perfumed finish. A twist of smoky, inky fruit on the bright, succulent close only adds to the appeal. It offers terrific class and bang for the money.
