Domaine de grand Chemin 2001 (review)

86+ points

Vin de Pays d’Oc, France 13%

A blend of Cabernet and Pinot Noir (hence the Vin de Pay appellation, the wine comes from near Nimes.

Very dense dark colour, with similar aromas. Baked, but dry baked, flavoured wine. I suspect the Pinot was added to lighten and give some acidity, probably successfully too. Not over the top, nor syrupy. One of the better wines of Southern France.
