Côtes Du Roussillion, France. 12.5%
Compared with the 2001 this is a fresher, lighter, less chunky wine. Modern and clean. Well balanced winemaking in a lighter vintage. Technically it might be considered a superior wine. But for me it is less interesting.
Good bistro/cafe wine. Good value.
PS the new vintage features a new label, something that wineries do to ensure that their brand does not grow!
