Cozes Hermitage, Rhône, France. 12.5%
Lovely Graillot style aromas of smoked meats, Dark lively wine, with plenty of fresh acidity (too much almost), and a slightly annoying flower type flavour that also exists in the 2004 – odd. Not thick, glycerolly or sweet in any way – a tad more would improve the wine I think. It is as it stands very much a food oriented wine.
