Medium light-garnet-red. Garrigue and pepper beef jerky dominate the nose, with allspice, dried cherry. On arrival, low tannin and medium acidity. A touch of blood in the mouth (iron ?), polite and mellow - even thin - with the cherries and jerky again. Finishes very vividly aromatically, big garrigue and violets and meat heaving from the empty glass. Smells better than it drinks. Bottle #2 of two.
Brick red colour with clear/orange rim. Bouquet exudes tobacco, cinnamon and mature fruit. The palate has a ripe, rich edge showing style, maturity and balance. Fruit flavours are predominantly red current, green tomato and black current leaf. This is a complex, mature and intriguing wine.
Pas pris de note sur le coup. De mémoire, belle robe à peine évoluée. Beau nez complexe de fruits noirs, réglisse, des notes mentholée/camphrées. Bouche pleine, veloutée, aux tanins arrondis, mais avec de la fraicheur. Très bon

(Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage) Good colour. An appealing Rhône nose, a little woody at first, but soon opening out to reveal great earthy, funky Syrah notes. Good presence on the palate, just a little flesh, but certainly a nice, rounded feel. Integrated and ready, with nice character. Drink now. Good.
