- ABV 15%
- Closure: Cork
Opaque dark red black colour with deep dark red hue. The nose is a touch subdued with aromas of dark plum, blackberry, earth and spice with a leather end note. The palate delivers outstanding concentration and depth – full bodied with flavours of ripe black cherry, black plum, liquorice and blackberry followed by some spicy earth back palate flavours. Dry finish with chewy, slightly dry but balanced tannins. Excellent length with aftertaste of blackberry, dark plum and blackpepper.
Cellar 4-5 years (2014-2015)
The other cuvee coming from Chapoutier is the Agly Brothers Cotes du Roussillon. Both the 2006 and 2007 are made from 30-35% 130-year old Carignan vines, with the rest Grenache and Syrah. Both are brilliant, old style, traditionally made wines. They both admirably demonstrate the exceptional potential that exists in the Cotes du Roussillon. The 2006 possesses an extraordinary bouquet of truffles, damp earth, sweet cherries, black fruits, garrigue, and pepper. With a sensational texture, medium to full body, supple tannins, and an extremely long finish, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. My experience with Carignan has shown that as promising as these wines can be when
young, they tend to become attenuated and raspy with age.
