Gilles Robin Cotes du Rhone Terroir de Bramarel 2016, Grenache Shiraz
Gilles Robin Côtes du Rhône “Terroir de Bramarel” 2016. 60% Grenache and 40% Shiraz. It might only be 40% of the blend but this is an unusually Shiraz-led Côtes-du-Rhône blend in its style and flavours profile, from a vintage that accentuated the northern Rhône aspects of this variety’s personality: the fruit is perfumed, spicy, earthy, and savoury, with medium-bodied balance and drinkability. A wonderful wine from the cellars of a hugely respected artisan. Drink now to 2025.
