The Montagnes’ 2010 Cotes du Roussillon Sabina as usual showcases Grenache, though here the complimentary young-vines Syrah amounts to 30%. There is infectious juiciness and invigoration from seedy red and black raspberries – mingled with beet root and laced with a hint of horseradish for a borscht-like effect – in the context of formidable sheer intensity. But that is not to say that nuance is left behind. Iris and violet on the nose proceed to waft through the entire proceedings, while crushed stone and saline suffusions serve for counterpoint and saliva-liberation on a long, energetic and dynamic finish. This effusive and polished performance should remain captivating – not to mention offer outstanding value – through at least 2016.
