The really grand and elegant 2016 Truquilemu Vineyard starts off quite shy and takes some time to open up in the glass. They used a little more stems for the fermentation (stems are added rather than using the full clusters), as they don't like carbonic maceration. This is characterful, floral, subtle and really elegant while keeping the varietal profile. The tannins are very fine grained, and the palate feels really balanced. This has to be the stuff wine dreams are made of! 5,230 bottles. (LG)
Labelled 'Carignan field blend'. Dry-farmed vines more than 70 years old. Granitic soils. Spontaneous fermentation. Aged in used barrels over two winters. 5,230 bottles. A super-spicy, intense, concentrated wine. Modern and very good. There is great stuff here. Some reduction (truffle and earth). The texture is wonderful, tight, intense, with integrated tannins. A wine with a long journey and life ahead of it. 17.5/20 points. (FC)
