M Chapoutier ‘Les Meysonniers’ Crozes-Hermitage 2000

84 points

Southern Rhone, France. 13%

I was surpirsed to see flashes of crimson when I first poured this – at almost 6 years of age, in a v.good but not outstanding vintage and for one of the earliest drinking of Northern Rhone appellations. The wine has ever so slightly above average acidity which may explain the good colour.

This is a well made food friendly wine without great varietal character, weight, or concentration. Pretty good for what it is.
