Le Cirque Rouge - new vintage scores 90 points!

2014 Le Cirque Rouge....$15.99
Given the difficulty in the vintage, I was shocked at the quality of the 2014 IGP Cotes Catalanes and it’s a beautiful wine. Made from 60% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 20% Syrah, it has medium to full-bodied richness to go with ample darker berry fruits, crushed herbs and pepper on the nose and palate. From 50+-year-old vines and tiny yields on the order of two tons per acre, it’s a no-brainer and will drink nicely for 2-3 years.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
