Wine Advocate Review
A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and a splash of Carignan, the 2014 Cotes Catalanes Grenache D66 IGP spent ten months in roughly 30% new barrels. This inky colored, downright sexy 2014 offers terrific notes of blueberries, blackberries, violets and chalky minerality. Big, concentrated and textured, yet still playing in the more elegant style of the 2014 vintage, this beauty will drink well for a decade.
Wine Tasting Notes
Ink black in color with a shade of crimson on the band, the wine suggests a powerful tasting experience. Dark dried fruit, cocoa, spring flowers, and Mediterranean herb aromas are framed by seasoned French oak resulting in stunning aromatics. The entry is rich with exotic spice notes leading to mouth filling flavors of blackberry, licorice, blueberry jam, and espresso. The finish has a velvety texture that lingers indefinitely with enough minerality to remind you of this special region.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan.
