(casks) mild red robe; soft, squeezy air of red berries, the garden in summer in the glass, with a little smoke and note of tannin beyond the fruit. The palate is juicy, round, immersed, coulis style raspberry fruit at its heart. It gives a little tannic bite, also oak grip. The palate is aromatic and enjoyable, holds fine juice. This is a charming wine to drink and think about, not one to knock back carelessly – it is a wine of fine tread. From late 2017. £400 12 b in bond H2Vin GB www.h2vin.co.uk 2026-28  Nov 2014

Appellation:
AOP Cote Rotie, northern Rhone

Grape Variety:
95% Syrah, 5% Viognier

Tasting Notes:
From the steep Le Mollard lieu-dit. Very elegant and floral at start. A feminist beginning with plenty of berries and sweet spices, mixed herbs, stones and licorice emerges as it airs over 1 hour later, finish with a full bodied and lengthy aftertaste.
