More about this wine

Persan is very difficult to grow (some years it just won't!) but it makes wild and wonderful reds. This is an unusual variety which can come across as excellent but a little demanding. 

We have chosen two. This one from Philippe Grisard, is a smoother expression of the wild wine that is Persan.

The wine is fruity and spicy with Alpine floral notes with smooth tannins and refreshing acidity.
