A superb vintage, and magnificent Syrah for this lovely garnet red wine with its nose of forgotten fruits such as persimmon and quince, followed by notes of cherries in alcohol, eucalyptus, cloves, and blackcurrant. In the mouth it is smooth, well-balanced, and fresh, with black fruit – blackcurrant and blackberry – and the tanginess of redcurrant, before evolving to black pepper, cistus flowers and a touch of menthol on the finish. A delicious Minervois that has all the elegance typical of the appellation, but with its own strikingly individual personality. A wine that cannot fail to impress.
