Cuvée Sabrine Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  538496

This blend of 70% grenache, 20% syrah, 10% mourvèdre is hand harvested from vines averaging 60-years-old and is a treat for the nose - ripe dark fruit, baking spice, violet, dry tobacco aromas and a fresh minty note. It's a medium-full bodied red matured 18 months in concrete vats then blended and aged an additional six months before bottling. A cool and supple stream of ripe blackberry, black cherry, cassis and black olive flavours travel the palate with ease and enjoyment along with savoury herb and black pepper notes persisting in the medium-length, warm, dry finish. This is a great partner to roasted lamb or red pizza with black olives. Exceptional-value wine. Score - 92. (Louise Boutin,, March 25, 2019)
