(2015) With a relatively modest 13.5% alcohol this 60% Grenache blend also has a relatively pale colour, suggesting a Châteauneuf in a lighter style. The nose has soft strawberry and vanilla, that is pleasing if not terribly terroir-specific. It has a fruity palate too, a lean stripe of liquorice and a very dry finish, but it is spicy and peppery and reasonably long. It just feels a touch too lean for its own good. 86
