What a nose - red and black fruit compote with a hint of bay leaf. A bit of a baby Cote Rotie, but perhaps more playful. The palate is deliciously juicy, with crunchy red and black fruits - currants, raspberries, and brambles.
That fruit is balanced by fresh herbs, black olives and a touch of black pepper. There's a lovely grip and dustiness to the tannins. Brilliant balance of rusticity and poise. Seriously good wine.
