Syrah/Vieilles Vignes Grenache 2019 AP Côtes du Roussillon
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer Bastide Miraflors
A just-tasted REPEAT of the 2019 (***) that was last released on April 2, 2022. This 14th release at Vintages is a winner and comes with a very deep intense purple colour. The nose is bright, intense and gently spicy with lots of faintly smoky, ripe, cassis-plum-cherry purée fruit with a hint of toasty, mocha-chocolate. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, bright, intense, ripe, plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, gently cedary, faintly smoke-tinged finish. This very tasty, harmonious, ready-to-drink blend of 70% Syrah (in concrete tanks) and 30% Grenache (in 600 litre oak demi-muid barrels) has 14.5% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar with a new lot number L21154 on the lower part of the glass bottle.

A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: Richly fruited and spicy at the same time, the wine shows dark berry, toasted spice, game, thyme and almond notes on the nose. It's equally attractive on the palate offering excellent fruit intensity together with fleshy texture and fine grainy tannins, offering structure as well as approachability. At its best: now to 2026.
