Wine Advocate Review
Rocking stuff, the 2016 Côtes Catalanes Grenache D66 (80% Grenache and 20% Grenache Blanc) from Richard Floyd boasts a deep, saturated color as well as hedonistic notes of black currants, chocolate, massive crushed rock-like minerality and baking spices. Rich, full-bodied, unctuous and concentrated, yet with considerable purity and freshness, it's a big blockbuster beauty to drink over the coming decade. Drink now-2027.
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.
