Grenache, Syrah and Carignan
93 points from Robert Parker
Ideal growing conditions with a crowning harvest mark this 2014 vintage.
A saturated cardinal hue belted in garnet is revealed in the glass.
The nose brims with an impeccable oak profile with shaded oak tree accents. A mineral cast of alluvial soil can be detected as well, which frames a vibrant perfume of red berry fruits, cassis, cardamom, and exotic spices.
The entry bursts with a vibrant blueberry and cassis concentrate that is rounded out with the richness of a crème brûlée, or crema catalana.
The mid palate has vibrant acidity with distinctive mineral notes of garrigue, stone, and schist. Closing with purpose, the wine boasts silky tannins and a lengthy finish of sublime richness.
