Medium ruby. Wonderfully aromatic nose of cassis smoked meat gunflint and violet. Silky-sweet and pliant considerably more generous in the mouth today than the Cote-Rotie. But then this is more a "wine of the sun" says... Medium ruby. Wonderfully aromatic nose of cassis smoked meat gunflint and violet. Silky-sweet and pliant considerably more generous in the mouth today than the Cote-Rotie. But then this is more a "wine of the sun" says Tardieu from vines facing full south. Suave and superb. Finishes with lush tanins and lovely subtle sweetness from the oak.
