ROC DES ANGES IGLESIA VELLA 2012

Wine Region: Cotes du Roussillon, France

Grapes: Grenache Gris

Tasting Notes

Exotically floral and musky notes mingle with ripe melons in the nose, then follow onto a silken-textured yet infectiously juicy palate, with iodine and shrimp shell reduction adding to the complex counterpoint of a lushly yet mouth-wateringly lingering finish. It shimmers with energy and complexity. Vintage in image may vary.
