2014 Yves Leccia Vin de Pays L'ille Beaute Rouge
$ 29.99

80% Grenache and 20% Niellucciu. Lighter then the Patrimonio rouge where the Grenache notes are more prevalent on the nose but less in the body. Lots of red currant gets merged with herbs, mint and licorice. The acid gives it almost a Beaujolais (carbonic macerated) feel for a few seconds until the backbone kicks in and adds more austerity.
