This is hard to stop drinking. Wonderfully balanced, open, and ripe but in a classic old world sense.

Expressive and perfumed aromas and tastes of black fruits, trademark garrigue, some light floral and earthy qualities in a medium bodied but rich mouthfeel. Tannins provide a little structure and grip, but aren't in the way. This wine jumps off your palate with lovely acidity.

Plums and licorice greet you, maybe a little red berry as well, when you approach this medium to full bodied CdP. It sure delivers what you would expect at this price level from the well known Southern Rhone AOC. Very drinkable.
