From the Côtes Catalanes, a zesty and robust Grenache, Carignan and Syrah red wine blend. Love the fresh dark berry, ripe plum, wild herb sweet spice flavours on the palate with a lingering soft smoky finish. So balanced and so good. Great now. Pair with a roast of pork.

Grenache Noir Carignan Syrah food pairings: beef stew, roasted pork, gourmet burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

60/20/20 blend of Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah. Juicy and baked fruits, namely cherry and plum, followed up by violet. Good acidity and tannins paired with a full body. Ripe and jammy from the nose through the palate to the finish. A good value red, new world styling with old world heritage, that will please the crowd. A pleasant match for veal and beef dishes.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This 60% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 20% Syrah opens with raspberry and blackberry on the nose. Generous plummy dark fruit on the palate just bordering on jammy. It is medium-bodied and smooth with fine chalky tannins on the finish. A very approachable and overall enjoyable pour. Good value. Pair with burgers or ribs. Tasted July 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Le Cirque 2015 is a fragrant, seductively spicy Grenache Noir, Carignan and Syrah red wine blend from the Roussillon wine region. Dry and robust with dark berry, cherry pepper spice, smoky, earthy and garrigue herb flavours on the palate. Easy to enjoy and great value under $17. Pair with BBQ chicken or ribs. - Community Wine Reviews
