Regular price $36.99

Unic 2022

Le Roc des Anges
Cotes Catalanes
Latour de France,
Languedoc


Winery: Grenache Noir planted in 1991. Well-drained, decomposed schistes, some sandy soils interwoven (like Rayas/Comando G). This soil profile, combined with whole-cluster grenache, is a special mix that brings a singular expression to the wine. Unic is not about power and concentration, it is about elegance and restraint. It has this charming, less-is-more style, with great tension, freshness, refinement and nuances.
Tasting Note: Bing Cherry, raspberry, ripe strawberry, and round red plum notes. A very finessed structure, silky from the mature vines that remind one of a fine Volnay red Burgundy or a Willamette Pinot that echoes the old world. Grenache the resembles Pinot finesse, typical of sand grown Grenache at its best liek Rayas and Comando G!
