Has a bright red robe that is very Grenache. Iodine, seashore airs mingle with blue fruit, strawberry jam, light licorice on the nose. The palate is plum-fruited, holds liberal spicing, the tannins having a light crunch. This is good and genuine, a true Côtes with a good Grenache heart. The fringes add spice, changing its texture. The juice is a little reticent in its delivery, and it’s quite tight knit overall.
