Mas du Soleilla
Petit Mars
2006

This Coteaux du Languedoc AOC is 100% Syrah. It reaches up to you with a spicy, peppery nose suggesting violets and warm earth. Across the palate it's easy and refined, offering light fruit and hints of the garrigue that surround these vines. The finish is a little smoky, liked earth baked by sunshine. Supple and nuanced, it's not a powerhouse. It's restrained. This Mars is not a god of war, but of pleasure.
