2016 Gerard Bertrand La Clape Grand Vin Rouge Chateau L'Hospitalet

Other French | Rhone Blend

"Is there any doubt that there's something special about La Clape (other than it's far preferable to herpes)? Gerard Bertrand's 2016 La Clape L'Hospitalitas was the most compelling wine I tasted there this February, loaded with peppery blueberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it still shows great purity and focus, with supple tannins framing the lingering finish. Drink this wine anytime over the next decade or so."

"A generous, broad red that layers steeped black cherry, Kalamata olive and red plum reduction flavors, infused with graphite, black tea and mocha accents, all bound together with full, polished tannins on the meaty, spicy finish. Drink now through 2025."
