La Cave de Roquebrun “Les Fiefs d’Aupenac” Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun RED 2019. NEW vintage.
60% Shiraz, 20% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre.
Bam! Smoky, meaty, earthy, dense and dark fruit, intense but channeled, mint chocolate notes, herbs and stones, oak and crispy bacon fat, while the palate is rich and sappy with very fine tannin by the shovel load, mouth-coating, gripping length. The Grange des Combes (wine #5) is a superb introduction to the Roquebrun style but the Fiefs d’Aupenac takes it to the next level with old vines, the best parcels, and oak maturation.
