K d’Eole rouge 2016

2016, an exceptional vintage

This blend is only produced in years when the old Carignan grape vines with low yields are capable of standing on their own. After 2007, 2011, and 2015, here is the return of its delicate and elegant notes of violet and ripe blackcurrant. This cellar-worthy wine, with a perfect balance and silky tannins, will continue to gain aromatic complexity for years to come.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate - 19/05/01: (rating:90 - drink date 2019-2025) The 2016 Vin de France K d'Eole includes the estate's oldest Carignan. It features slightly woody green notes on the nose, offset by wonderfully ripe black cherries. Medium to full-bodied, this is firm but ripe, with enough tannic richness to comfortably age another 5-6 years, maybe more.

EcoRéseau Business – april 2019: This 100% Carignan wine comes from old vines over 50 years old, and is a wine with character made in years where the old Carignan with anecdotal yields are enough. Full of its own typicality, body, and spirit, it surprises with the intensity of its fruit, silky tannins, and beautiful tension. It generously offers its southern accent with notes of violets and ripe blackcurrants. Best served between 16 and 18 degrees, it particularly enjoys lamb leg, game birds, and flavorful poultry.

Centre Presse Mag - 2017/10/06: The cuvée, Le K 2015 Domaine d'Eole, Vin de France, is only produced in years where the Carignan grape is enough on its own. Until now, the estate has only produced two editions: 2007 and 2011. This 100% Carignan is a wine of character. The 50-year-old vines are grown using organic agriculture in an arid, rocky terroir. Strong in body and spirit, surprising with the intensity of its fruit, the K, with its silky tannins, generously offers its southern French accent. Opulence and delicacy sharpen the senses.

Cuisine et Vins - june-july-august 2013 "Provence - Les raisins du coeur": Kbis rolls in the palace like a southern accent. The estate is swept by the wind. The breath of air cools the fruits and gives the Carignan, a grape known for its rusticity, a seductive finesse on a serious and dense juice. This wine is only produced if the year allows it; it must be excellent.

Les 5 du Vin - august 2015 - Carignan Story "Quand le K bis devient un cas d'école": First sips, first bites, should I say first pecks because I nibble more than I bite or drink. As often with Carignan, you can tell the wine needs to open up and to truly enjoy it, one should decant it without waiting. There's a slight firmness at the attack, but nothing serious, just a sign of goodwill. A few minutes later, the wine is more approachable, more charming with notes of crushed strawberries. Gentle tannins emerge but without too much roughness. Let's wait for it. The next day, it's much better: tenderness, sweetness, velvety, fruit is a bit less pronounced but still present, balance, length, and its alcohol content (14.5%) doesn't stand out. In three words: a beautiful wine. Read more of the article on Les5duvin.wordpress.com.
