DESCRIPTION:

Lo Paire, or “the father” in the local Occitan dialect, is La Croix de Saint-Jean’s flagship wine, made from a blend of syrah with some mourvedre and grenache. It is an elegant red wine, exhibiting aromas of dried herbs, liquorice and blackcurrant, and is full-bodied with a good tannic structure.
