Rated 95 Points
All Grenache brought up in demi-muids and aged on lees for 8 months, the medium ruby/purple hued color of the 2019 Cuvée Nicolas is followed by a killer bouquet of kirsch liqueur, savory spices, cured meats, and peppery garrigue. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and gorgeously textured, it has wonderful richness with no sensation of weight or heaviness. It's another insane value from this team.
Wine Tasting Notes
Cuvee Nicolas is named after Jean-Marc and Eliane's son and comes from Grenache grown in the schist soils of the foothills of the Pyrenees in Aspres. These low yielding vines are around 65 years old and are planted on terraces with southern and southeastern exposure. The Cuvee Nicolas carries fabulous notes of black raspberry, licorice and crushed violets to go with medium-bodied richness, fine tannin and a supple, pretty profile on the palate, with class and elegance.
