Tasting Notes:
“Vieilles Vignes” is 100% Grenache aged in some new oak. After a few months in bottle it will already be drinkable with its Burgundian purity (something to do with it being another mono-varietal, perhaps) the fruit is more red than black and the richness masks the spiciness of this grape. The oak sheen adds another dimension of sweet vanilla but in such a good vintage this is not overdone.
