Domaine Gilles Troullier-Cotes Catalanes-"L

Domaine Gilles Troullier
Cotes Catalanes
"L'esprit du temps"


80+ year old Grenache from the schist (slate) hillside vineyards of French Catalonia, near the Mediterranean. The region is wildly proud of their Grenache here, and for good reason. L’esprit du Temps showcases the grape: spicy, jammy strawberries, cocoa, framboise, espresso. Strong wine, mellow tannins, Drinking awesome.
"Offers very dark fruit, ample blackberry, currants and licorice notes intermixed with plenty of spice and minerality. Medium to full-bodied, voluptuous, decadent and seamless, it is an awesome wine that will thrill for 15 years or more. Both of these efforts are some of the top 100% Grenache efforts coming out of the region.

"These awesome wines are made by Gilles Troullier, who was the former winemaker/cellar master for Chapoutier’s Roussillon efforts. Now focusing solely on his own estate, he’s producing some of the most exciting wines from the region."  Jeb Dunnuck for The Wine Advocate, February 2014
