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.

Tasting Notes
This is the terrific northern hemisphere joint venture (as opposed to 'La Pleiade' in Australia) between legendary biodynamic winemakers and bonzer mates, Ron Laughton and Michel Chapoutier.

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).
