Super concentrated with nice lift...still mostly on fruits complexity will come .... a potentially very good wine

WOW!!! Incredible new vintage of this outstanding wine! Herbs, Leather, smoke, vanilla with a hint of barnyard on the nose. That said, lots of blue and black fruit flavors on the pallet. Full bodied and luscious. Long and lingering finish. This is a wine of the year candidate! Revisited during Christmas week 2019. Noted the blend is 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah. 10% Counoise with the balance being made up of some of the other 10 permitted CDP grapes. Just brilliant!

Young, a bit tight, but still a fine drink.

This is a scattered toddler showing no signs of the adult it will become. Wait another 7-10 years.
