Holy red fruit Batman. Punch in the face of fruitiness...I have tended away from these wines in recent years but this had nice balance, wasn’t flabby. Could be good go to for traditional fruit lovers. — 21 days ago
2016 vintage. Inédite, Corbières rouge. Another brilliant wine from this excellent estate. From a plot named "Les Amandiers" with 30 years old vines. A blend of Syrah (50%), Grenache (35%) and Mourvèdre (15%). Aged 18 months in 20 hl and 225 l French oak. Delicate extractions and low yields lead to amazingly refined, fresh and complex wine with velvety tannins and a long spicy finish. Terrific value. Highly recommended. Abv. 14,5%. — 9 days ago
Deep rich purple in color. Mustiness on open that blew off over 20 minutes. Earth, grilled meat, with a layer of stewed strawberry vanilla on top, the remaining wood component will continue to convert to tertiary flavors with additional age. Dry with medium acidity, medium plus alcohol, medium plus tannins, with a lengthy finish with a lingering chalky white pepper. This wine is excellent and will improve.
This was my 2nd bottle and review of this wine. The notes are fairly consistent but the mustiness was not present in the first. Interesting.

Oh the jubilation of sitting outside on a beautiful day with people in addition to your immediate family and drinking the good stuff. What can be said about one of the world’s perfect rosés that hasn’t been said. Benchmark bright berries and watermelon citrus snap and mouthwatering acidity. Fresh and clean and disappears almost instantly on a warm day. Please sir, may I have some more? — a day ago
Deep Ruby (more red compared to it's older brother reviewed tonight). Barnyard funk on the nose. Soil and greenery. Obvious wood still present. Alcohol feels hotter, medium plus acidity, medium plus bodied. Firm tannins. This too will get better over time, but probably not much given the absence of fruit (as opposed to still present red berries in the Especial Vinyes Velles). Very Good.
