Anne Gros JP Tollot L'O de La Vie 2017
"An 80-20 blend of Syrah and Grenache, the 2016 Minervois L'O de la Vie was aged almost entirely in tank, with just 15% seeing wood. With all that Syrah, there's a bit of tarry reduction at first, so give it a healthy decant to let the cedar and black cherry notes come out. It's medium to full-bodied, slightly more concentrated than the IGP offerings, silky in texture and long on the finish."
