Bress Harcourt Valley Le Grand Coq Noir Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
The colour is fractionally more developed than the Gold Chook, but there is a greater volume of dark plum, blackberry and spice-accented fruit; the medium-bodied palate has great mouthfeel, halfway between silk and velvet, the tannins supple, the oak balanced.

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
Harvested a full month after Bress’ Heathcote Shiraz, the intensity on display here is tremendous, laced with black fruits and liquorice, yet never pushing its concentration too far, riding the conservative edge of full-bodied with particular prowess. The fruit is of sufficient proportions to effortlessly sustain full whole bunch fermentation, lending complexity of lifted violets, exotic spice and high cocoa dark chocolate. Tannins are finely poised, thanks to the gentle extraction of foot stomping, making for an approachable and earlier-drinking Grand Coq.

Tyson Stelzer (2009 Vintage) says
Tired of the "mine is bigger than yours" delusion? Flop out Le Grand Coq! Just 13%, giving full voice to a feminine side of violets, anise, sarsaparilla and blueberries. Don't be fooled, it's brooding, structured and age worthy, so put it away!
