Corcelettes Cabernet Sauvignon - Syrah Menhir

Corcelettes Cabernet Sauvignon - Syrah Menhir 2016

CanadaThe Menhir of Corcelettes, Switzerland, is iconic. It stands tall and proud near the castle of Grandson, where the Baessler family originate. I loved the 2013 Menhir, and the '16 is equally as exciting. The vintage is supreme, and this mix of syrah and cabernet seems like great fit, and Corcelettes' Menhir features 100 percent French puncheon ageing, making a lasting but lighter impression on the fruit. Look for a soft red fruit nose with generous plum and black cherry on the palate. The tannins are fine grained with a savoury dusting of dried herbs. You can drink or hold this wine through 2021. Today I loved it with simply prepared lamb chops.Tasted: 18 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Corcelettes Estate WineryDistributors: BCWineshop
