Wine Tasting Note: Domaine de Grand Selve Rouge, 2002, Vin de Pays de Saint Sardos, France.
The aroma can only be called complex - fleeting hints of dark undergrowth, violets, licorice and a hint of reductive properties. Flavours are more fruity but with an earthy edge to the lavender and bitter chocolate finish. The acidity lends a rustic edge, dominating as it does the mid-palate. Food is required for this full-bodied wine. This is an interesting blend of Syrah 50%, Cabernet Franc 30% and Tannat 20%. Alcohol 12.5%. Worth tracking down.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100

This particular cuv�e was first bottled in 1995. The grapes are sourced from land that held the original vineyards of the area, owned by the Grand Selve Abbey, which is pictured on the label.
