The Bee-Side Grenache IGP Côtes Catalanes 2017

The Bee-Side Grenache is the second label from Domaine of the Bee and is made from 100% Grenache. Most of the grapes come from the "Bee's" own vineyards but some grapes are sourced from the vines of Jean-Marc Lafage. A medium bodied red wine that is a wonderful cherry red in colour.  The nose displays cherry and raspberry "fruit compote" notes with a touch of local herbs and a hint of oak from its year in barrel. The palate is bursting with expressive red fruits, checked with a distinct mineral freshness, rounded and smooth tannins and notes of fennel that balance the wine perfectly into a long finish.

Very cool label, looking like an old vinyl LP…. I would hesitate to call this the lighter side of Grenache. But this is Roussillon … It certainly smells beautiful. Plum skins and chocolate and bruised raspberries. Warming up the back of the throat with plenty of tannins but delicious, pure, soaring Grenache fruit. So fresh that it fans out in the mouth like a dark-red rose filled with evening dew. The back label also suggest rosemary, and I have to agree – it’s there, scented, lifting the finish. I wouldn’t call it light – even relatively – but it’s damn good.
