Montirius, Garrigues
14 of 18

Montirius, Garrigues, Vacqueyras, Rhône 2009

A full-bodied Grenache (70%) and Syrah blend that combines intense, ripe, spicy black cherries and dried herbs with a savoury minerality. Fine tannins from time in cement rather than oak. The long, complex finish punches well above its price. Great value. 17pts/20
