Dense and profound, this powerful red wine boasts a tonic character, exhaling notes of red berries, black cherries and plums.
The palate is sappy with elegant tannins, underscored by fresh juice and then by a hint of slightly stronger black berry flavors. These features are followed by a tight mineral sensation, accompanied by a long and fresh discrete spicy finish.
This is the most precocious wine produced at MAS AMIEL. It evolves with elegance thanks to its inherent freshness. It is akin to ORIGINE, with which it shares certain characteristics. Straightforward Carignan fits perfectly well with Grenache noir’s roundness and is completed by the Syrah grape variety. This product is precise and provides plenty of flesh and juice. INITIAL is highly expressive. It is at once neat, frank and seductive.
The harvest is entirely handpicked in 20-kg crates. Afterwards, the grapes are entirely de-stemmed. The plots are made into wine according to their terroir, in view of highlighting the special features of each vineyard.
Part of the wine is elaborated in concrete vats and the other part in oak casks.
