The 2016 ‘Le Lien’ is composed of 100% old-vine Grenache from Les Brusquières and Les Terres Blanches. It begins with intense aromas of kirsch cherries and raspberries, along with minerals, spices, wet stones and an iodine character. On the palate this is deep and concentrated with loads of ripe kirsch cherries at its core. Rich and velvety, this possesses wonderful freshness leading into the long, supple finish. A wonderful wine which will ultimately require some additional bottle age before it begins to show its best.
