TN – Classic CdP color; dense purple core, lighter ruby rim. Massive dark cherry and plum fruit mix with spicy anise, pepper smoke and limestone. The heavenly mouthfeel, sleek texture and full throttle tannins will leave your tongue numb on the finish. Irregular vintage compared to ‘07 or ‘10, but still a great showing for this ‘11 L’Ange … 93+ points easily. Opens tight, so plan ahead 2-3 hours to decant for full aroma and flavors.
65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault
