i'm a sucker for older rhones so keep that in mind, as i did not find this at all past peak or oxidized. at peak now for sure however. full, viscous, dry with a hint of sage and honey. a long, complex palate. this was simply wonderful. mine stored pristine at 57degrees.
Based on the almost orange color, was expecting an oxidized roussanne well past its prime. Instead, this started out with a heavy hand of petrol and must, but quickly evolved to a very complex mix of yellow and orange fruit infused with petrol and saline qualities. The texture is pure, mouthfeel thick. Amazingly generous wine right now with no signs of fading.
Amber/caramel. Pineapple, fig and mineral nose. Fig and apricot flavours. Very dry finish and nice medium wieght. Always an excellent wine. I've been very lucky to have a few chances to drink this wine.
