22/01/2017 – Clos de Paulilles Collioure 2014

(2017) The Roussillon is a wonderfully dramatic vineyard landscape, with rugged hillsides planted with vines right up to the edge of cliffs over the pounding Atlantic. This comes from such a vineyard, planted on slate soils, and is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. It has a deliciously expressive spice and red fruit nose, full of life and energy. Is there a hint of iodine from that sea spray? In the mouth it is both sweetly ripe and mouth-wateringly savoury, the medium bodied finesse and subtle yet precise axis of tannin and acidity balancing perfectly. Watch the video for food matching suggestions and more information. Please note: this is a special parcel in Majestic so limited supply, and it's £10.99 as part of a mixed six.
