Overview

The Cairanne is a blend of Grenache and Syrah. While more structured and deeply fruited than the Côtes-du-Rhône, the Cairanne is still lithe and winsome showing the classic acidity and minerality of the appellation with more bass notes and a darker fruitiness. This cuvée always shows the beautiful balance between the generosity of the Grenache and the structure of the Syrah.
