Semi-opaque purple/red in colour, this is deep, dark and inviting, with heady aromas of cassis and bramble fruit, tobacco, citrus and spice, with little hints of meat and new leather. The palate is bright and intensely fruity, lightly spicy and herby, with bags of red and black berry fruit flavours, leather and spice. The texture is medium-rich and mouth-filling, with ample acidity and beautifully grippy tannins, making for a wine that is lovely to drink now, but with the structure to age and improve for another 5 years or more. This is a brilliant example of a Languedoc "Bordeaux blend" and frankly it knocks spots off just about any right-bank Claret under £20.
