Clos Saint Antonin Côtes du Rhône 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
|Brand||Clos Saint Antonin|
The final blend of the 2016 Cotes du Rhone, tasted prior to bottling, is 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah. Ripe, mouthwatering and fresh, this medium to full-bodied wine delivers juicy plum and black cherry fruit underscored by softly dusty tannins. It should drink well for up to 5 years.
While there were no prices listed on these wines (I'm not sure who brings them into the United States), the 2016 Côtes du Rhône should be sought out by savvy buyers. Ripe, rounded, and incredibly sexy, with lots of kirsch and blackberry fruits, garrigue, and mineral notes, it has impeccable balance as well as purity of fruit. It's a knockout Côtes du Rhône to drink over the coming 3-4 years.
Focused, featuring a solid beam of cherry and raspberry pâte de fruit notes, flecked with anise and garrigue hints. Shows good length and definition. Drink now. 312 cases imported.
