Wine Region: Rhone Valley - France
Tasting notes: The nose opens up with notes of crushed stone and matches combined with slightly caramelised yellow stone fruit. The wine is velvety smooth on entry and mouthwatering and very approachable on the palate. A remarkably pure and promising version of this grand cru.
