Drink it now or cellar it for up to 10 years. It is recommended to decant it for half an hour.

A single visit in 2008 was enough for Dave Phinney to fall in love with the unique scenic beauty of Languedoc-Roussillon. He had been invited by a couple of friends who had just bought vineyards in the Maury region. When, upon his arrival, he contemplated the steep mountains, the shale soils and the old vineyards, he immediately decided to start a new adventure in this splendid region of France. In 2009 he started building his own winery. Since then, the Maury region has been his second home.

Today the vineyard extends over 120 hectares and is planted with typical vines such as Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Grenache Gris. The vines are on average more than sixty years old. From the concentrated grapes of these vineyards, Dave Phinney makes powerful wines, with an unmistakable style. These are wines that fascinate with their intense aroma, their great density, and their extremely rich taste.

Dark and dense with a concentrated profile of silky ripe plum, cassis, violet and moist shale, Grenache D66 displays a rich cardinal red hue in the glass. The first impression offers notes of blue and black peel fruits of supreme richness. Tasty notes of cardamom, molasses, dried quinces and the typical minerality of the South of France complete the tasting experience. The soft tannins support the wine and give it a nice freshness. Have it with lamb or aged cheese.
