Wine AdvocateBeautifully done, the 2010 Minervois Giocoso (two-thirds Grenache and the balance Syrah and Carignan) exhibits ample cassis, black cherry liqueur, resinous herbs, licorice and walnut shell-like aromas and flavors. It hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful freshness and an overall seamless, elegant profile that's a joy to drink. Finesse-oriented, yet with building richness and ample underlying structure, this beauty can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 7-8 years.
