Tahi, Domaine Treloar, Cotes du Roussillon, France 2009

from 19.95

Beautiful, polished and pure with a vibrancy that draws you into the glass and aromas that keep your nose glued to it – although you may want to sit back and let the aromas escape after a while as it will open up and only enhance the pleasure. It has a really attractive and intense perfume centred around blueberry, kirsch and bramble fruit which mingle with notes of orange, burning embers and shaved chocolate. It’s expressive and rich in layers, and yet also still quite tightly wound – hinting at the long future  it has ahead of it. No fancy label, no ego, no spin, just ravishing flavour. The character of the region flowing through every pore of this rich, juicy red, which manages to be both deep and bright, graceful and powerful, as well as sleek and composed. Drink this profound blend of Syrah (55%), Mourvedre (20%), Grenache (17%) and Carignan (8%) with grilled lamp chops, roast chicken, chargrilled fore rib of beef or roast venison. 14% alc. Drink now – 2025.
 

JancisRobinson.com: “Creamy texture. Really vibrant fruit – black bramble character with a touch of menthol and some gamey character too. Drying tannins on the finish – this needs plenty of time. Gorgeous smoke and flint note.” 18 points


Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: “The 2009 Cotes du Roussillon Tahi offers a pretty, perfumed bouquet of iodine, iron, leafy herbs and darker blackberry and currant-styled fruits. Medium-bodied, rich and textured, with fabulous purity, this blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre will continue to impress over the coming 4-6 years or more.” 90/100
