The 2016 La Clape la Falaise was the only red from that vintage that had been bottled at the time of my February visit. It's a blend of 55% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 5% Mourvèdre that aged a year in foudres. It's a rich, velvety wine filled with black cherry fruit that verges on surmaturité. Creamy, supple and long, but not as concentrated or intense as the other bottlings, I'd opt for drinking this fruit-bomb within its first decade. It's a good introduction to the house style.
