Medium brick red colour with clear/tawny edge. Upfront bouquet showing lots of damson and other red fruit character with an oaky edge. On the palate - lots of red fruit, plenty of fruity acidity and very light tannin. Tastes much younger than a 20 year old wine but the prominent acidity suggests it may be just OTT. Still a lovely wine and remarkably fresh
This is brick red in colour with slightly orange-red rim. Nose has slight menthol character. Palate has full soft fruit with mineral core. Notes of meat, silky smooth finish. Got better with more air after about 45 min. Much better than I expected.
I was not expecting too much from a 18 years old simple Crozes but this was holding up very well and it was a pleasure to drink this wine. Smoke, earthy notes with a mix of red and dark fruits. Not a lot of structure on the mid-palate but it firms up on the finish with a light tannic grip. Good acidity.
