BORDEAUX 2016 EN PRIMEUR
Jancis Robinson : Very majestic and autumnal on the nose. Very
concentrated and all in the future. Not weak at all with much more obvious ripe
fruit in the middle than Clos de Beze. Dense and very dry and savoury but the
fruit more than stands up to the new oak. Magnificent. Vibrato.
18.5/20 Jancis Robinson : 100% new
oak. Intense, splendidly purple somehow nose. Black fruits and liqueur-like.
Lots of structure and very embryonic. The oak is still pretty obvious. Great
Jancis Robinson :
Very attractive savoury nose already. Very juicy and lively with masses
of tannin. Promising for the future. Eric Rousseau thinks this is less
obviously Morey than usual.
A pale partridge eye pink with perfumed bouquet, which follows with elegant summer fruits. The palate is refined and elegant with faint cherry nuances and beautifully integrated balancing acidity. This superb rose is made from a blend of old vines grown on the Esclans estate by Burgundian winemaking techniques resulting in a rounded and expressive Provence rose with unusual complexity.
From the very beginning (ex Mouton Rothschild) winemaker Patrick Léon crafted a lighter style of rosé, and this very much errs on the side of being fresh, clean, mineral with a white peach expression. The style has been very closely maintained over the past 10 years, even as the grape sourcing has grown exponentially. This is unoaked, vinified in stainless steel tanks, kept chilled at every stage of the process. From a blend of Grenache, Rolle, Cinsault and Syrah, all hand-harvested. Easy to see why this works so well. 91 Points Decanter
The 2016 rosé has a pale cherry color with a slight copper tinge. It is full-bodied and well structured, with fresh red berry fruit, tart apple skin, and notes of spice and dried herbs. As usual, it is a blend of 41% Grenache, 33% Mourvedre, and 26% Cinsault all of which is direct-press juice. The color is a bit lighter than last year’s, but the wine has a bit more power behind it.
This wine is sourced from a single 30 year old vineyard that is divided into 3 parcels at 800 meters elevation in the Almansa region, around the town of Albacete. The grape is Garnacha Tintorera (or Alicante Bouchet), and the soils are chalky, clay-calcareous. The wine is wild yeast fermented with 50% whole grape clusters in 4500 litre cement vats, with soft pigeage and a short maceration of 7 days; then raised in cement for 8 months. The result is a remarkably fresh wine with earthy dark fruit and spice – a great wine to pair with savoury dishes, like roasted meats, sausages, mushrooms, and rice dishes, like paella or arroz negro. 580 cases produced
