Brotte Cairanne Creation Grosset 2016

SKU 015643532832


"Création Grosset" expresses the authentic character of the Grenache grapes that thrive in the dry, warm Mediterranean climate of the Cairanne appellation. Our "cuvée" is generous and ample. Notes of wild fruits and prunes are followed by toasted hints which marry harmoniously with fine tannins.

Wine AdvocateFloral and herbal on the nose, the 2016 Cairanne Creation Grosset is a medium to full-bodied, just-ripe wine with elegant fruity notes of raspberries and cherries. It's silky yet firm, with enough concentration to be capable of aging through 2025. It's a blend of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, aged in a combination of wooden foudres and cement tanks.

Wine EnthusiastThis well-priced Grenache-blend is buoyantly perfumed, offering loads of ripe black-cherry and blackberry notes shaded with thyme, wild mint and juniper. It's a rich and spicy sip with a long, juicy finish. Enjoy now-2024.

Wine SpectatorDark cherry and red currant fruit is melded with notes of melted licorice and singed vanilla, backed by a lingering tobacco hint on the finish. Offers a good graphite spine. Drink now through 2020.
