Sablet Red

The Roux Family acquired the Château du Trignon in 1896. Back then it was a traditional Provençal farm of the time, with mixed and livestock farming. Since then 5 generations have refocused the farm on the vine and expanded the estate; a qualitative approach is also underway.
In 2006, the familly Quiot charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail, wish to perpetuate Château du Trignon.

The 2010 Château du Trignon Côtes du Rhöne Villages Sablet is a blend Grenache and Mourvedre that was still in tank at the time of tasting. Showing quality, traditional aromas of licorice, garrigue, pepper, and spice, as well as a medium-bodied, supple texture and a clean finish, this solid effort opens up in the glass, has plenty of character, and will shine for 4-5years.

Plenty of dark fruit here with a hint of spice. the palate is both youthful and complete, though lacks a bit of charm.
