Organic. Frédéric and François Alary bottle this punchy, biodynamic value Cotes du Rhone their younger and middle-aged vines, lying just 300 metres from Rasteau. The 2016 blend is Grenache (80% of the blend) and Syrah, and even at this humble level the Oratoire vines yield just 30 hectolitres per hectare (an astonishingly low return given that Cotes de Rhône villages are entitled to be made from vines cropped at 50 hectolitres per hectare). Naturally fermented and raised entirely in concrete, this release struts with the deep, dark, inky succulentof the year – it’s packed with dark cherry, bitter chocolate and cola fruit and there are loads of pippy tannins to balance the fruit power. Surprisingly powerful and structured for this money, it’s a full throttle Grenache and a superb release.
