red robe, with advance at its top. This has the facile air of red fruit jelly – it does not promise potential or offer mystery. The red jam has a tiny dusty element, with fennel and licorice. The palate gives simple red fruit, with a drying nature after half way. It ends on pepper. This lacks interest, is mild, innocuous, rather pleasant. There are many better Côtes du Rhône Villages. To 2017. €4.95 export. May 2012 Previously Feb 2012 * the top robe is advancing. Has an earthy, rather reductive air, deep and earthy.

This lacks pedigree fruit. 15°. To 2014. Feb 2012
