I very much liked the 2016 proposed SAQ last year. Without knowing why, this is the 2018 who just arrived this year. Nobody will complain, because the wine is as good, if not better. The assembly, dominated by the monsatrell (mourvèdre in French) and completed by the garnacha tintorera (which is meant not that of the grenache, as its name suggests, but much of the alicante bouschet – which has all of the same ancestry as the… grenache), giving a wine with the dark color with bright reflections and purple tones. Aromas of good intensity reminiscent of blackberry, cherry, tar and licorice. It is rich, ample, full-bodied with a sharp acidity and a finish that is as energetic as finely heady. Give him a little oxygen to the wine is fully revealed (carafe 30-45 minutes or opening 4-5 hours before – the so-called method of Audouze, or ” audouzage “). A must with BBQ. Available in more than 130 branches.
