A beautiful garnet red with ruby gleams for this superb Cuvée Rare from the exceptional terroir of Collioure, whose terraces plunge into the Mediterranean. The opulent nose is brimming with fruit such as cherry, fresh fig, strawberry, followed by mocha, chocolate and fragrant humus. The tannins are fine and melting. The first palate shows magnificent concentration, in notes of yellow plum, fig and tobacco, evolving to a finish that re-emphasizes the cherry characters and rolls together liquorice, peppermint and aniseed. This harsh, austere terroir does not yield up its treasures easily, but when all the stars are aligned offers the most spectacular wines in the Roussillon.
