Southern Rhone, France. 15%
I recall an earlier vintage of this wine, probably 10 years ago at least, as sumptuous and distinctly herby, an exciting luxurious treat. This is different, less opulent.
I’m not a fan of Grenache yet in C-D-P they avoid it getting so fruity, lollylike.
This is savoury, complex, and the alcohol isn’t noticeable. Still young with good acid.
