Tessellae Old Vines | Grenache Syrah Mourvedre 2019 / 750 ml.

Item#: 96401

RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Sep 2021
A tank-aged blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre, the medium to full-bodied 2019 Tessellae Old Vines is dominated by bright, mouthwatering fruit: from raspberries to blueberries, with touches of blackberries swirled in, and just enough black olives and soft tannins on the finish to leave behind a dry, savory impression. Drink it over the next several years. (Joe Czerwinski)

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Blackcurrants, smoked herbs, licorice, and some bloody meatiness all emerge from the 2019 Cotes Du Roussillon Villages Old Vine. It’s medium to full-bodied, plush, and sexy on the palate, with a wonderful sense of seamlessness. (Jeb Dunnuck)

All old vine Carignan, the 2019 Côtes Catalanes Tessellae Carignan from Jean-Marc Lafage offers a beautifully pure nose of red and blue fruits, brambly herbs, violets, and leather. This carries to a medium to full-bodied red with silky tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. It has impressive purity as well as elegance and is going to keep for 2–4 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
