"Slightly darker fruited and less floral than the Entrée du Royaume, the 2017 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Les Cimes is a similarly styled wine, one that emphasizes silky elegance over sheer extract, yet it offers tremendous flavor and complexity. This blend is 45% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Carignan. Brimming with blueberries and plums, it hints at floral notes and includes a rich blend of dried spices. It's aged in 50% new oak (500-liter barrels) yet doesn't appear oaky at all, save perhaps for a soft dusting of wood tannins on the finish."
