60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre

Cuvée Foudre is our version of a full-bodied Rhone blend worthy of Chateauneuf Du Pape. Thanks to a naturally low crop set, the 2021 was a particularly strong vintage for Grenache. The blend is 60% Grenache from our Alban clone vines, 30% Syrah from clones 174 and 877, and 10% Mourvedre, all planted in 1998. It was aged in a 620-gallon foudre, which is neutral. I love this vintage because it is quintessential Unti - meaning it straddles the line between robust Rhone and etherial Burgundy. Who knew a Grenache blend could be so sophisticated? The '21 CF will improve over the next 3-4 years and last another 5.
