Brotte Cairanne Creation Grosset 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone-Villages|
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.
