I think there is a slight change in the style compared to the 2016 version. Surprisingly light color. It’s like a Beaujolais Cru from the Southern Rhone, with an emphasis on bright fruit. Definitely not your raisiny, ripe Grenache blend, though it’s full on the palate. There is a whole bunch-like character here which made it look vibrant at first, but after some aerating it turned a bit too herbal for me. This might become a better wine with a few years of aging, when the green notes turn into spiciness.
