Tasting Note:

Moving on from the Coudoulet you shift up several gears here. Great density, mouthfeel and fruit definition. Floral, velvety and crisply pristine dark fruit. Multi-layered, scented cherry blossom fruit with a palate awash with cassis, black cherry, bramble, salt and spice. Deep but stylish and classy. Haut-Couture Châteauneuf. A blend of all permitted varieties that in 2018 is dominated by Mourvèdre, more so than usual, which makes up 55% of the blend as opposed to the usual 30%. The rest is made up of, predominantly, Grenache, Syrah, Counoise, Cinsault, as well a small drop of the other permitted varieties.
