WA 92.

The 2014 Les Alcusses has always been a blend of local and French varieties aged in oak barrels; this year the blend is approximately 30% Monastrell, 20% Garnacha Tintorera, 15% each Petit Verdot and Syrah, and 10% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot fermented destemmed with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and aged in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels for eight months. I also noticed a strong balsamic strike here, full of aromatic herbs, thyme, rosemary and a touch of esparto grass and tree bark. The oak is very nicely integrated, with contained ripeness (they aren't replacing as many barriques, and in 2017, they bought some 5,000-liter oak foudres); it's more linear and balanced than in the past. There are some fine-grained tannins that would work perfectly with food. The French varieties felt very integrated with the others,...90,000 bottles were filled in July 2017. LG Dec 2017.
