2009 Muntada, Domaine Gauby, Côtes du Roussillon Villages

“Hints of game and marjoram, smoky black tea and kelp add intrigue on a long, buoyant, saliva-inducing finish… 50% from centenarian Carignan vines; 40% from ancient Grenache; the rest Syrah, half of it matured in a new foudre - smells intensely of incense, coniferous scrub, mulberry, blackberry and game … Rich and baritonal, it saturates the palate with lightly-cooked, for the vintage, by surprisingly tart-edged black fruits underlain by garrigue, peat, toasted nuts, and crushed stone. The tannins here are vanishingly fine-grained, yet present as part of an overall sense of density that by no means precludes levity…” 94 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
