Chevalier de Bayard is skilfully crafted from Carignan, Cinsault and Grenache, giving it excellent depth of flavour. A vibrant cherry fruit flavour, light and elegant with a hint of plum followed by a delicately smooth finish.
The wine comes from the department of the Aude, part of the southern French Oc region, where in ancient times they spoke Occitan and Oc meant 'yes'. The wine is named after France's valiant knight (chevalier in French), Pierre de Terreil, who was born at the Bayard castle at Grenoble and came to the French court in 1489. Serve at cellar temperature or slightly chilled and best enjoyed young.
