Some of the winemakers in the Rhône Valley are saying 2019 is one of the best vintages in the last 30 years – that is a very big call. However wines like this suggest they may be right on the money as, despite its moderate price, it packs a serious punch both in the power and complexity stakes. Deeply coloured for a Côtes du Rhône, there are intense dark berry aromas but what lurks behind is best of all; tar, liquorice plus roasted meat and soy sauce. It then takes a rustic turn on the palate with more charcuterie and and white pepper flavours plus balanced chewy tannins. The wine fades a bit to finish but still delivers plenty of personality for the price.
