Domaine Treloar Motus Mourvedre 2016 from Roussillon
1 BOTTLE LEFT
"Motus" 2016, 75% Mourvèdre, 20% Shiraz, 5% Grenache. Perhaps it's the tightening impact of the 20% Shiraz, which, as I've already described for "Le Secret", seems to be the embodiment of fleshy-savouriness at Treloar, but Motus could not be further from the Mourvèdre stereotype of uncontrolled, animal-infused fruitiness. Instead there is a mahogany perfume and precision, a subtle yet steady seriousness to the aromatics, notes of menthol and eucalyptus, and then a palate that is tight, tannic, and endlessly long. Stunning and original. Drink now to 2035+. 13.4% alcohol. Price will be: $39.95.
