Marco Cirillo tends what may be the oldest grenache vines in the world, planted in 1848. This wine comes from his younger block, planted in 1932, around the time his family bought the oak foudres in which he ages The Vincent. He includes some whole bunches in the fermentation, using a mix of old oak and stainless steel, producing a crisp, refreshing red with old-vine depth of flavor. It’s a tight, firm, juicy line of strawberry-red fruit focused along tart apple acidity. A wine to enjoy in its youth, with rustic country pâté or duck rillettes.
Crisp and bright, offering a mix of bright cherry, mineral and white pepper notes that add an air of delicacy and precision. The tannins are firm and in the background. Drink now through 2026. (MW, Web only-2017)
Typical of the variety, this wine shows ripe strawberries, florals, white pepper and a hint of stalky, smokey gamyness. The flavors on the palate are simpler—mainly cherry and strawberry fruit—but there's still a delicacy and juiciness that make this easy to knock back. (CP)
