L’Artisan Le Grenache Noir 2019

Made by Jean-Claude Mas of Arrogant Frog fame. This one made from 20 year old vines in the Languedoc-Roussillion region of southern France. Bottled under cork. Available here in Australia via Dan Murphy’s.

L’Artisan, Le Grenache Noir, IGP Pays d’Oc, 2019


Hefty bottle for the price! Plump and plush plum, raspberry, blackberry and American oak vanilla. A solid, meaty base with smoky incense and potpourri.  Offers a medium-full body with a satin smooth generous fruit entry before falling away to a clean, if somewhat short, finish. Nothing too complex but pleasant.

RRP: $19.99
Alc: 14%
Rating: 17/20 (87/100)
