The newest cuvee, the 2009 Grand Grenache 66 (16.2% alcohol) is a tiny cuvee bursting with kirsch liqueur, lavender, licorice and spice box. This is a stunning example of Grenache at its best, with wonderful freshness, and for Grenache afficionados, this is one to buy and drink over the next 15 or so years. (RP) 94-96+
Bright ruby. Explosive scents of red fruit preserves, mocha, lavender oil, black cardamom and star anise. Plush, sweet and seamless, with expansive raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Wonderfully pure and silky in texture, with a spine of minerality providing focus and cut. Finishes very long, spicy and smooth, with resonating floral notes and serious punch. (JR)
Yves Gras selects this Grenache from his best parcels. It’s redolent of herbs and wildflowers—in fact too floral for some of our tasters. Others found the aromas matched the succulent berry flavors and added charm, the wine feeling firm without crossing the line into rustic.
