Vinsobres is the northernmost outpost of the southern Rhône growing areas, and most of the excellent cru of Vinsobres is at a bit of altitude (around 400-450m), so that the wines- even though they are Grenache-based- exhibit lower alcohol and more freshness than many other southern Rhône crus. The Jaume brothers' Référence cuvée is primarily Grenache (60% or so); Syrah and a splash of Mourvèdre add body and complexity. It is annually one of the Jaumes' top bottlings, and the 2016 is no exception; there's a touch of new oak, vanilla, pie spice and an almost kirsch-like quality that hints at the massive concentration.
