Nostre Païs Red 2016

2016 vintage is the greatest vintage Michel has ever seen in his 23 years of making wine. Naturally moderate yields, a warm and dry growing season with exceptionally cool nights produced fresh, concentrated and wonderfully balanced grapes.

Appearance
Nose

Pure and complex, the black fruit, cherry, and hot stones, are released with a bit of aeration.

Taste

The dense & velvety body fills the palate and reveals notes of cacao, dried herbs and pencil lead. The fresh and fruity finish is heightened by mineral notes and fine tannins.
