This is quite simply, a stunning wine! Huge beyond belief, with oodles of character and an intensity that grips you throughout the entire mouthful all the way to the never ending finish.

A stunningly aromatic bouquet of black stone fruit, sweet spice and some earthy, dank woody tones! The palate is dry, very dry. It’s full of black cherry and liquorice, with some beautiful soft savoury flavours of mixed herbs, clove and aniseed. Polished, yet still rather grippy tannins, alongside subtle oak layers offering up sweet vanilla and a still vibrant acidity makes for a wonderfully balanced wine, incredibly poised and elegant.

Weighty, rich and unctuous. Opulence personified. A true showpiece, fit for any special occasion. I must offer a huge thank you to Joe, Liz and Ryan O’Connell at Domaine O, for this masterpiece!

  2. Take the exit towards Pennautier. Continue 500m to a small roundabout and go straight over.
  3. Look out for the second road on your right, Avenue des Cévennes which curves up hill (about 1km) to Avenue de la Montagne Noire on the left.
  4. At the last juction, bear left. the road sign “Ave de la Montagne Noire” (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
  5. After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
