Soula Le Casot de Mailloles 2016, biodynamic wine, Grenache 100%, like Chateauneuf with explosions of energy and emotion. Soula is produced from old vines of Grenache planted on steep terraced vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean in Banyuls. It is a wine which in youth hides its potential for profound depth and complexity behind exuberant fresh red fruits, spices and high acidity. With age it becomes something much more, animal and dark fruit aromas develop and you smell the local garrigue, black olives and taste the salt of the sea. This new 2016 vintage is superb, actually drinking already very well with a softness to the palate which normally arrives later in the wines life. It has those classic sensations and emotions of high quality Grenache, a grape which surely must rank as one of the finest red grapes in the world. Round, warm, rich red fruits, well balanced acidity, tension and softness, delicious. With Provencal flavoured meat dishes, this is delicious.
PS - If you want untouched natural wine with no added sulphites but also with no rough hewn edges or overly funky notes, this is the wine for you.
