Domaine des 2 Anes Fontanilles Corbieres 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

60% Carignan & a blend of Syrah & Grenache Noir. A touch of funk greets the nose but as that blows off it’s replaced by a lovely blend of violet pastille, grilled beef, ginseng, and spicy blue fruits. Bright and soft, this is more driven by the acid, which is well integrated, rather than the somewhat soft tannins. it almost fills the mouth with finely balanced weight and shows off fruit that artfully blends mineral basenotes with fresh, crisp and transparent wild berry fruits that are both sweetly ripe and offer the complexity of an edge of bitterness. Very clean on the long finish, where black cherry and that bitter edge gains a medicinal aspect and takes over. A rather nuanced and sophisticated wine that shows real complexity and fine aromatics in the mouth. 89pts
