Côtes du Roussillon: Agly Brothers 2015
"It's a sensational 2015 that offers notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, chocolate, licorice and roasted herbs. Rich, full-bodied, unctuous and downright sexy, with moderate acidity and building tannin, drink this powerhouse beauty anytime over the coming 5-7 years or more." 95/100.

First produced in 2004, Ron and Michel have overseen steady improvements to this blend of Syrah and Grenache from just 3 hectares in the Roussillon (hence very limited quantities are produced).
