One of the flagship cuvées, the 2018 Côte A Côte checks in as 48% Grenache, 26% Mourvèdre and 26% Syrah that’s aging in plenty of new oak. Loads of blackberries, chocolate, ground herbs, and graphite nuances give way to blockbuster style, powerful yet elegant beauty that has silky tannins and a great, great finish. It’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and cruise over the following decade.
