Château St Cosme, Little James Basket Press NV
This unique, non-vintage 100% Grenache from the Rhône utilises a solera system, and this year’s bottling is 50% 2015 combined with the solera blend of vintages stretching back to 1999. It has spicy black fruits on the nose with hints of menthol and liquorice. The palate has a deep black fruit character, although there is a slightly green tannic note on the finish. Worth every penny.
