The 2017 Claude's Cuvée is an interesting blend of 52% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 10% Mataro, 8% Tempranillo, and 8% Carignan that was raised mostly in French oak. It offers a more earthy, meaty bouquet of spiced black fruits, cedarwood, leafy herbs, and herbed meat. Beautifully textured and full-bodied, it offers ripe, polished tannins and a great, great finish. It ranks with the best of the best and will cruise for a decade in cool cellars.
The medium to deep ruby colored 2017 Claude's Cuvée is mainly Syrah, blended with smaller amounts of Grenache, Mataro and Carignan. It was made with 41% whole cluster and aged 22 months in 70% new oak. It has an appealingly "cool climate" perfume of white pepper, mint chocolate, blackcurrants, fresh violets and a core of blackberries and blueberries. The medium to full-bodied palate is elegant, super fresh and restrained, with a grainy frame and still tightly wound finish. This is lovely! (EB) 94+
