The Bee-Side Grenache 2021

IGP Côtes Catalanes, Roussillon, Sud de France, FranceDomaine of the Bee's second label (and smartly named / labelled The Bee-Side) is grenache partially from their estate vineyards, plus neighbouring Jean-Marc Lafage’s vines. The estate fruit was partial saignée, and then blended with the whole, resulting in a very light wine, while Lafage's was partial whole bunch. The lots were blended to create a light hued, light bodied red. Crushed florals, wild strawberry, delicate spices rule this smashable Grenache, bedded with stones. Gently whisper fine tannins wrap around the delicate and pure strawberry core, dusted with white pepper. Such a charmer, and at just 13.5%, one you can revisit often.Tasted: 29 April 2022Tasted by: Treve RingProducer: Domaine of the BeeGrape: Grenache Noir/Garnacha
