Presentation of the vineyard
The "Le Baou d'Enfer" winery is the story of Colin Clement from Scotland who gets into the wine business first through vino eonological studies in Hyères and then by working on several different vineyards in Provence. When Colin pays attention to this little place situated between La Mole and Le Lavendou, he asks the owner to lease the land that today comprises 2.18 hectares of vineyard. The harvest is done manually and the winery is almost an art work where the end products are of very high quality.
A deep ruby color. A powerful intense aroma of red fruit, mainly cherries with some spicy hints of Provence herbs. The taste is slightly lighter and softer than the scent inlovar. A fruity flavors of red fruit, present tannins which may soften further after a year of storage. A good red wine to drink with lamb chops or red meat.
