The Red Set 6

{{ producer }} {{ region }} £110.00

Pithon 357 2017
Colombière Coste Rouge 2016
Boulevard Napoléon Cabernet Franc/Syrah 2017
Trapadis Roaix Les Perrières 2018
St. Mitre Cuvée M Rouge 2014
Ch. Revelette PUR Grenache 2019

We’ll start with the Revelette Grenache PUR 2019 "when Grenache becomes Pinot Noir" as Peter Fischer says, it is pure, delicate with no interventions, straight from nature’s garden. We might be wrong but there is interconnectivity across vineyards and heading to the Rhone makes sense, we say brilliant garnet hue, Trapadis Roaix les Perrières, all our winemakers care intensely for their soils, beyond the colour are notes of earth and white pepper behind pure red fruits. There’s Syrah and some age in St. Mitre’s Cuvee M Rouge 2014, we`re delighted that they still made a red before the demand for their rosé took over! On our way South West, just west of Toulouse sits the small appellation of Fronton, a long time favourite. We can take the comment “benchmark” happily for this 100% Negrette, the indigenous grape, concentrated berry fruit, some smokiness, maybe graphite notes, just the ticket. In the Pyrenean foothills Olivier Pithon, the “357” 2017 Carignan is redolent of the high hills, purple and some black fruits, intense like the blue skies above, with a certain clarity and finesse…. Finally BN Cabernet Franc Syrah 2017, there is an early days story about Cabernet Franc at the winery but for now suffice to say we feel that Cabernet Franc is happy in our hills, it has a certain richesse separating it from the wines of the Loire but retaining the purity of fruit and with a little of our Syrah to reach a most satisfactory, and lengthy, conclusion.
