2019 CÔTE RÔTIE Champon Domaine Clusel-Roch
Grapes - Syrah
Country - France
Region - Northern Rhone
ABV - 14%
Spicy and alive on the nose, vibrant and searching. Expansive on the palate, but only medium-bodied, this has dense sweet tannins and a little sweetly ripe edge to the fruit. Really shot through with ripe, pliant tannins, this will offer lots of pleasure early on. Very much of its vintage, ripe and joyful.
Drinking range: 2021 - 2026
