This is the top wine of Domaine Le Colombier, and it's a pretty serious beasty. It's a bit more concentrated than the Tradition Rouge, and displays aromas of dark fruits, anise and earthiness on the nose. The palate is quite full-bodied with the anise spice and dried herbs coming through over toasty oak, mellow tannins, and a dry, spicy finish. It will drink well over the next few years, and would be a great partner to roast meats.
Only 800 cases made of this, Mourre family's top wine.
The "G" stands for "Gilbert", in honour of Jean-Louis' father.
50% Syrah (Shiraz), 50% Grenache from 50 y.o. vines - 12 mths barrel age. Displays a dense ruby/purple color and a big, sweet kiss of blackberry and cassis, along with licorice, graphite, and Provencal herbs. Seductive, full-bodied, and exhibiting some toasty vanilla notes that are not dominant or intrusive, this is a beauty to drink over the next 5-6 years.
