La Lauzeta 2016

Tasted out of bottle, the inky colored 2016 Saint Chinian La Lauzeta comes from older vines and steeper, hillside parcels of primarily schist soils. Brought up all in barrel and a blend of Grenache and Syrah, this ripe, sexy beauty offers full-bodied aromas and flavors of crème de cassis, melted licorice, crushed rocks, and spice. Despite all the fruit and texture, it has solid underlying structure and loads of depth.

Coup de Cœur ***

Longuement macérés et patiemment élevés en fut, elle conjugue élégance et concentration. Intense et complexe, sa pellette aromatique mêle la violette, les épices, la garrigue et la torréfaction. Le plais harmonieux brille par son ampleur, sa puissance et sa charpente, étayé par des tanins encore fermes qui appellent la garde. 2021-2027
