Make sure you are sitting when you start smelling this. Spice , earth , red fruit with hints of some darker fruit and incense leap at you. The palate shows more reticent giving you primary fruit and acid that lingers in the mouth. Swims in your mouth like a great white shark. Will not open another for at least 5+ years.

Un-be-lievable!! Had the 08 for thanksgiving. This is light years beyond it. France doing what it does best contrasting with Napa Grenache: nice integrated red (not blue) fruit with some kick on the back end. Somehow hitting beautiful secondary notes (and maybe tertiary?) at a young age. Feels like it could age forever. Need to get another to try in 10 years. This and Henri Bonneau are my two fav Grenache, if you haven't tried check them out!
