2016 Chateau Maris "Les Amandiers" Minervois La Liviniere (Previously $70)

SKU #1521433 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Slightly deeper colored, the 2016 Minervois La Livinière Amandiers might just be the finest vintage of this cuvée to date. Sensational notes of blackberries, scorched earth, wood smoke, and peppery garrigue all emerge from this full-bodied, deep, concentrated Syrah that has remarkable purity and elegance. It's going to drink nicely right out of the gate yet evolve gracefully for 10-15 years. It should match or exceed the 2007, which is drinking brilliantly today. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark From a 2.5-acre patch of biodynamically farmed old-vine syrah, this is tight and chewy, the concentrated fruit wrapped in the caramel notes of the new barrels that held it for 16 months. Give it hours of air to let those oaky notes turn floral and spicy, toward high-toned cedar scents that bring out the red side of the fruit. Time in the cellar, or a long decant, will let the structure relax and the fruit flow. Inner quote mark (6/2020)
