Celler del Roure 16 Setze Gallet 2011
|Brand||Celler del Roure|
Wine AdvocateAged six months in stainless steel tanks, the 2011 Setz Gallets (a blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Monastrell, 25% Merlot and 15% Mando - an indigenous local varietal) is a beautifully expressive red revealing a terrific texture along with lots of raspberry and blueberry fruit, and a cool climate mouthfeel that belies the region from which it was produced. The proprietor's family has long believed in the potential of the indigenous Mando grape. From a vineyard planted at 1,650 feet above sea level, this is a wonderfully fruity, somewhat Beaujolais-styled offering with more body and texture than most Beaujolais possess. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
