Jean-Paul Fontaine 2016 Les Princesses
Syrah-Grenache (Languedoc)
This magentainflected wine offers a nose of cherry and blueberry cobbler. On the palate, the well-placed, lifting acidity draws the full-throttle ripeness into a lingering finish, where a pleasing earthiness helps curb the exuberant fruit. The tannins are impressively smooth, contributing to the palate’s custardy character. Given its intense fruit concentration, this should hold well and may develop to some benefit. Drink now–2022.
