Narassa 2019 IGP Côtes Catalanes
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer Lafage
This new 2019 has a medium-deep violet-red colour with a gently spicy, juicy, ripe, black-cherry-plum puree nose. It’s quite rounded, fairly dry and medium to medium-full bodied with slightly spicy, juicy, ripe, plum-cherry puree flavours with a lingering, seemingly very gently cedary, harmonious, lingering finish. This ready-to-drink, mellow, crowd-pleasing blend of 82% Grenache and 18% Syrah has 15% alcohol and 9 g/L residual sugar with lot number L22087 on the on the lower part of the glass bottle.

TASTING NOTE: A blend of 82% Grenache and 18% Syrah, the 2019 IGP Cotes Catalanes Narassa spent 15 months in a 50-50 mix of tank and demi-muids (15% new). Black cherries and blueberries mingle easily on the nose, joined by hints of maple syrup and licorice. Full-bodied, velvety and super-ripe, it comes across as almost sweet on the lingering finish. Personally, I'd serve it late in the meal, perhaps alongside a well-aged Parmiggiano or similar cheese. Drink date: 2021-2025.
