Coulange Cuvée Mistral 2016
Winemaker Christelle Coulange returned to the family property after oenology school and began to make and bottle her own wine. In only a decade she has made quite a name for herself. Her wines win medals nearly every year — today’s 2016 the silver at the Gilbert & Gaillard International Concours.
The 2016 Mistral is delightful, an unoaked blend of 80% grenache and 20% syrah. It’s more substantial than the 2015, with fuller fruit and a deeper palate. The nose shows violets, wild cherry jam, and garrigue (provençal underbrush), with woodsy and briary notes as it develops in the glass. The mouth is dense and smooth, with a rich, vibrant mouthfeel, and smooth tannins.
