Calmel & Joseph Collioure 'Les Elmes' 2019
GOLD MEDAL: Grenache du Monde 2022
95 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team
92 POINTS: James Suckling
"Collioure is located in the southeastern France in Roussillon region, also known as French Catalonia. This Grenache dominant Cuvee is choke full of intense black fruits, fine tannins and a fresh long finish. If you havent tried wines from the southest, this is a great example."
- Wine Direct Tasting Team
"Crushed blueberries, plums, mushrooms and earth on the nose. Full-bodied with fine, firm tannins. Fresh acidity with bright fruit brings freshness to the peppery finish. Grenache, mourvedre and syrah. Drink now."
- 92 Points, James Suckling
"Made with mainly Grenache (Grenache 80%, Mourvèdre 10 %, Syrah 10 %) highly polished, intensely ripe, fruity nose of cherry, tobacco leaf and laurel that develops grilled notes, dark chocolate, and forest floor as it evolves. Very supple attack in the mouth with superbly elegant, fine-grained tannins. The palate has more structure than the 2018 vintage, but remains beautifully fresh and taut, with notes of wild aniseed, golden tobacco and truffle that linger on the finish. A truly great Grenache of distinctly Mediterranean style that will delight all who love this grape and this exceptional terroir."
