2015 VDF 'Entre Coeur'
100% Grenache, from 30-year old vines grown in schist soils, located in Port-Vendres, near the sea, near Collioure. 15 days carbonic maceration, without punching down or pumping over, in a 1000L tank. Élevage for 9 months in old 300 and 400L barrels. Racked and bottled by gravity.
Deep purple love juice. Violets, cocoa and liquorice. So soft and gentle to drink, like someone brushing you with a feather. The perfume on these wines is insane. This has the finest tannins known to man, schist is definitely prominent, and it shows in the tension. Some cola and bacon on the nose. So pleasant to drink, layers and layers, dreamy like. Powdered tannins on the finish. Gets almost chewy like when you slosh it around, but it’s light. Don’t know another Grenache like this, it’s magic…
