Côtes du Roussillon Villages
A luminous deep garnet red for this magnificent, low yielding vintage that expresses itself on the first nose in full, intense aromas of black fruit such as blackberry, but also spices like cinnamon, leading to lovely cocoa notes. In spite of the heat of 2016, the palate is balanced and smooth, with elegant and superbly integrated tannins. Notes of blackcurrant, pepper and cinnamon evolve to the freshness of liquorice and menthol on the finish. A Roussillon Villages of immense aromatic complexity in constant pursuit of perfect balance.
