Medoc, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%
Dark solid colour. Lifted aromatic, slightly plummy aromas – distinctly Rollan de By. Almost like a St.Emilion but not, yet definitely Merlot, and ripe and no sign of dilution, nor green. But soft and even a bit fleshy. Yet with some grippy acid and tannins. Interesting, great drinking now. Perfect cafe wine – though I doubt you’d ever find a bottle of this (9 years old) now in a cafe.
