Clos Marie

2006 cuvée l'olivette from Pic Saint Loup (Grenache Syrah and Mourvèdre). Cut to full review.
"Smoky and lush showing nice depth and weight, pretty chunky tannins adding dry texture and bitter twist/bite; fair oomph and grip vs dark cherry liquorice and tobacco, needs 6-12 months to come together fully. Turns a tad rustic and leather-tinged with very firm framework, but its solid trad Languedoc style seduces you in the end..."
