This vintage has gained in depth. Magnificently deep purple, it offers ripe aromas of blackcurrant flowers and strawberry with touches of menthol and aniseed adding complexity to the finish. The Syrah, picked at full maturity, packs the palate with red fruit and spices whilst the Grenache confers elegance and smoothness. The wine’s suppleness and the self-assurance of its tannins are an agreeable surprise. The blending of a high-altitude parcel with another cool altitude terroir has resulted in a singular and atypical Corbières far from the conventional image of this appellation. It is highly enjoyable whilst young but will mellow nicely over time.
