(2015) Last year I reviewed the 2009 vintage of this wine and absolutely loved it. It was a mature, soft and utterly seductive wine that I rated highly, but which sadly sold-out before many wine-pages' visitors had a chance to buy. Well, this 2012 is very different in that it is much more youthful, but I have to say it is another absolute beauty. A blend of 64% Grenache with Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault, as well as tiny percentages of four other varieties. Its colour is a solid crimson and it has a lovely nose of crushed red berries, a delightful floral top note, and background hints of cinnamon spice and vanilla. In the mouth it is full, rich and smooth, a fabulous fruit sweetness and fat texture, but real clarity with the refined, chocolaty tannins and pert cherry acidity. Just beautifully done.
