Les Mattes 'Vieilles Vignes', Les Vignes des Deux Soleils 2018
Deep, dark red in colour, bordering on black, with a wonderful aroma of dark forest-fruits and spice.
The palate is loaded with concentrated currant, dark-cherry and blackberry, with delicate spice and hints of dark chocolate. Its a wonderfully balanced wine and the well-judged use of fine, French oak has knitted the fruit flavours together perfectly, adding just the merest hint of vanilla and cigar box to the long, lingering finish.
I really enjoy this wine in its current stage of development and naturally a good decant really helps access the concentrated and complex palate.
This will certainly continue to evolve over the coming 3-5 years+ but pull the cork this weekend and it will not disappoint.

Indeed a wine of great individuality and dark power; a most interesting experience although I would rather drink it occasionally than frequently. I cannot fault the description by James R G.
