2016 Domaine de la Bastide Cotes du Rhone Figue Rouge
60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% old vine Carignan. Average age of vines - 35years
Deep purple color. The nose is intense and complex, with notes of ripe red fruit, cherry, sour cherry, black currant, and plum. The palate is concentrated and silky, with a nice sweetness and fruit. The tannins are round and thin, culminating in beautiful, long finish.Refreshing acidity plays well against the floral, berry palate.
Great for summer salads with herbs, poached chicken and light cheeses.
