And my Southern Rhone hot streak continues. Another phenomenal wine. Again, very traditional, but unlike the 2001 Charbonniere CdP VV from a few days earlier, this has more structure and is even more serious. Licorice and black currant, blackberry, and a good dose of leather, earth, herbs, and sappy freshness. Finish is great. Only bad thing is that this was my last bottle. Can be held for many more years.
