M. Chapoutier Sizeranne Hermitage 2005

91+ points

Hermitage, Northern Rhone, France. 13.5%

Shiny dense dark colour. Clear varietal Shiraz nose. This is a savoury concentrated wine with a bit of everything, but nothing overblown. Oak, tannin, flavour, acid. Well done.

Has lost the flush of youth but has some way to go until the complexities of age emerge.
