I have been drinking this wine for years, some vintages are better than others but they are always a pleasure to drink.
All the 2021 Southern Rhone wines I have tried have been rather dark and have more up-front acid than usual.
Anyway the wine is rather a dark red / purple in the glass with the aroma of black ripe fruit wafting up from the glass with intense red cherry, raspberry and blackberry notes with that ever-present lick of liquorice intertwined with that old world nose that makes this wine so enjoyable.
In the mouth: This wine is fresh with a velvet-like softness to all the above-mentioned fruit swirling around the glass releasing whiffs of red meat, All said and done this might just be the wine bargain of the year.
The wine will cellar for 5 to 6 years I wouldn’t expect it to last any longer than that. Not in my cellar!

If you know this wine I would suggest grabbing as much as you can afford because the price will go up as stocks run low, it is a dam good wine.


the new way we drink in 2022Michael Lillis

the Rot has set in.

The truth is this style of wine goes with casseroles, lamb shanks that style of thing, it’s not a fine dining style of wine.
For myself I just drink and enjoy the wine by its self.
For what it is. A good, honest bottle of wine.
Just wish I could afford to buy a lot more of this vintage!
