Product Description

"The return of Khayyam! Named in honour of the 11th century Persian poet, drinker and mathematician (Omar Khayyam), this comes entirely from 4.5 hectares of a single terroir. The blend is based on Grenache, with some 15% Syrah as well as Mourvèdre (15%) entering the picture for the first time. It's from a terroir littered with rolled 'galet' stones and the vines are cropped at two tonnes to the acre. This wine bats well above the Côtes du Rhône average, in fact it smashes the average for a six (to mix metaphors). It is a wine dripping with black cherry, liquorice, bay leaf, white pepper and anise. It's as dense as it is aromatic and when tasted from barrel was looking superbly balanced. 30% of the fruit was aged in foudre, on lees, bringing texture to the fresh fresh-picked bright fruit, which has been brilliantly preserved by early bottling. We've got a feeling that a certain 11th century 'wine connoisseur' would have purchaced this by the amphorae." - Importer's Note
