Located between Provence and the Rhône Valley, Château de Mille benefits from a northern exposure, high slopes and cold nights giving the wines exceptional vivacity and tension. Certified organic since 2022, most vines are at least 50 years old.
St Lucide is a beautiful Syrah blend with a touch of Grenache and Carignan. Aged for 18 months in 600hl oak barrels (60%) and stainless-steel tanks (40%). Concentrated aromas of black berries with notes of violets and black pepper. Full-bodied with some texture on the palate and a long finish. Low sulphites.
From the very first sniff this wine is appealing. Lots of black fruit, wild cherries, brambles, rosehips and classic Syrah incense aromas. Gorgeous, blue and black fruit, pretty violet florals, black chocolate and inky minerality carried by fine-textured tannins, vibrant pomegranate tartness and zingy rosehip acidity. Intense, fresh and elegant. Decant and hidden treasures emerge with notes of roasted coffee, rich cocoa, opulently juicy blackberries and amazing tannic structure. For northern Rhône lovers – this is great value.- 93 pts Elizabeth Gabay MW, Decanter
