M. Chapoutier La Sizeranne Hermitage 2003

88 points

Northern Rhone, France. 14.5%

Different nose to the 2001 raisins and a smidge of marzipan. Shows the 2003 vintage but not over the top. I certainly would not have guessed it was 14.5%. This is good dry table wine, I have a slight fear that these flavours could be a bit fatiguing with age (the wine not the drinker’s) but I could be wrong. Anyway no reason not to drink now.
