Domaine Nicolas Boiron Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
|Brand||Domaine Nicolas Boiron|
Completely destemmed and raised entirely in concrete, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Domaine Nicolas Boiron is a serious Côtes du Rhône. The blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Cinsault is full-bodied and rich, with hints of tar and black olive layered over ripe black cherries. A bit of licorice emerges on the long, silky finish. Drink this beauty over the next 5-7 years.
Juicy and direct, with plum paste, pastis and violet notes mixed together. Shows a dash of toast through the finish. Drink now.
