Domaine de Nizas Le Clos Rouge 2018
Smooth and sensual, this red blend reveals intense notes of red fruits. The plush fruit and spice flavors of Syrah are deliciously balanced by the sweetness of old vine Grenache and the vivacity of Mourv dre. The addition of Carignan brings everything together to create this generous and structured wine. From Fran ois Lurton’s P zenas estate, this is a smoky, polished red. Based on syrah with grenache, mourv dre and a touch of carignan, it macerated for three weeks in stainless steel tanks before half of it was moved into oak barrels for six months. The wood tones sweeten the fruit a touch, turning it from cherry to blueberry, and boost the texture into the velvety realm.
