2006 Écluse “Rendition”

Rating: 90 points
My two favorite offerings from Ecluse are their 2005 and 2006 Renditions, both complex blends of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre. The 2006 Rendition (59% Syrah, 32% Grenache, and 9% Mourvedre) reveals gamy, meaty, earthy notes intermixed with root vegetables, sweet cherry, roasted herb, and spice characteristics. It is a fruity, spicy, earthy, and concentrated.

2005 Écluse “Rendition”

Rating: 90 points
My two favorite offerings from Ecluse are their 2005 and 2006 Renditions, both complex blends of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre. The 2005 Rendition (46% Syrah, 39% Grenache, and 15% Mourvedre) possesses more sweet berry fruit, less spice and meatiness, deeper, more concentrated flavors, and a combination of power as well as elegance. Its purity and sweetness of fruit are striking compared to the spicy, earthy 2006.
