Dense but not fully open nose of spicy red fruit, meaty notes and mineral. Robust but not overpowering palate with notes of cracked pepper, white pepper, garrigue, dried berry fruit, cooked plum, ripe raspberries, dry stone and some dark floral notes. The finish is a battle between the acidity and the high alcohol (15.5) from the big Grenache styled vintage.
The nose of this wine is all fruit; plenty of blue and black fruits (both fresh and cooked). The palate shows more fresh herbs, licorice, fennel and spice. This is a very silky, polished and modern showing from Clos des Brusquieres.
