SUPERB Rhone exactly as described by Mr Lawrason. An absolute delight with a wonderfully smokey, meaty nose and a lovely herbal palate on the lighter side but still delectable with great complexity.

Complex aromas of earth, blackberries, plum, black pepper, mushrooms, cured meat.

On the palate, cracked black pepper, plum & blackberry jam, leafy herbs. Fruit,pepper and slight savoury finish. Perhaps not as nuanced as the nose would suggest.

Tasted October 2016.
