Chateau Romanin is located on the northern slope of the Alpilles, the mountain bordering the Mediterranean in Provence. There are some 58 hectares of vineyards on the property, made up of the usual southern French red and white varieties. It’s been certified as biodynamic (with Demeter) since 1998. The wines are universally of a very high standard and the difference between the various cuvées is in the origin of the grapes and the oak regimen.

Biodynamic wines are usually highly concentrated, very personalized and specific to their homeland, the "terrroir". This wine has won multiple Gold Medals, and according to the owners, will take a few years to fully express itself.

This wine is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet and Mourvèdre. The palate is rich, spicy, with the vivid fruit and firm tannins. I agree with every wine trader: This vintage is worth every cent!

Classification: Very good/excellent.
