Domaine La Toupie QuaTuor Rouge 2016
|France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Cotes de Roussillon
|Domaine La Toupie
A blend of the four staple red varieties of Roussillon, one-third of the 2016 Quatuor matured in barriques (10% new) for nine months. It's got distinctive notes of pine or similar resinous herbs, but it balances those with plummy fruit and overtones of dark chocolate. This is full-bodied and concentrated but with a certain degree of elegance.
