2016 Caramany Cotes du Roussillon Villages, Sous la Montagne

Tasting Notes

90 Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Caramany comes from higher elevation sites and is two-thirds Syrah and one-third Carignan that was mostly destemmed and aged all in concrete tanks. It has lots of mineral characteristics as well as notes of ripe red and black fruits, medium-bodied richness, impeccable balance and fine tannin. I like its elegance, and it has a complex, nuanced style (which is rare for a young barrel sample), suggesting it's going to drink nicely in its youth.
