2021 Domaine Grand Nicolet Cotes du Rhone
The Cotes du Rhone blend is produced from predominately Grenache (60%) and Syrah (30%) with some smaller amounts of Carignan (10%) also included. Aged in concrete vats for 8-12 months.
Deep black dark red colour with a youthful looking bright red purple hue. Leaping from the glass are freshly crushed raspberry and red liquorice aromas followed by some graphite, earth and white pepper notes. Rich dark raspberry, black cherry and liquorice fruits carry a juicy feel underscored by vibrant acidity and a muscular tannin structure. Inky earth and blackpepper elements linger on the back half. The dryish, slightly grippy finish layered with lashings of succulent fruit.
Cellar 3-4 years.
