18 months in 100% French oak Puncheon barrels
June 15, 2018
"I loved the 2013 Menhir, and the '16 is equally as exciting. The vintage is supreme, and this mix of syrah and cabernet seems like great fit, and Corcelettes' Menhir features 100 percent French puncheon ageing, making a lasting but lighter impression on the fruit. Look for a soft red fruit nose with generous plum and black cherry on the palate. The tannins are fine grained with a savoury dusting of dried herbs. You can drink or hold this wine through 2021. Today I loved it with simply prepared lamb chops." - Anthony Gismondi, The Vancouver Sun "Very pretty nose featuring ripe cassis, plum and black cherry aromas, mingled with cedar, spice and vanilla. Upon aeration, pleasing floral hints develop. This weighty, dense red is lifted by its freshness, its fine-grained tannins, and well-integrated oak flavours." -Jackie Blisson, MW
