2011. So much energy, focus, fine tannins for ages, strawberry and spice. Another testament of a screaming 15% alcohol Grenache.

One of my fav Pure's so far, spicy, focused, vibrant, kirsch, with some interesting whole cluster ferment character

Very nice wine for an “off” vintage, all the CdP characteristics come to play here. Just a nice wine in a great place wish I could get this on a regular basis. Fruit is up front without being in your face, no sweetness but great balance, must be the 100+ year old vines.

Great old vine Grenache wine. Very well balanced, clean fruit and well integrated tannins. Shows what a great producer can do in a not so great year.
