"If I had some concerns about how the 2015 would turn out, I've no question regarding the quality of the 2016 Beaumes de Venise, undoubtedly one of the top wines of the appellation. Complex aromas of flowering thyme, lavender and bay leaf join cracked pepper, roasted meat and red raspberries in this tank-aged blend of 70% Grenache (including a small proportion of Grenache Blanc), 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre. Full-bodied, silky in texture, with a long, vibrant, pepper and berry-laden finish, it should drink well for more than a decade. - Joe Czerwinski"
