Red Wine /// Rhone Blend // Southern Rhone / France
A very refined glass of wine, with lifted aromas of spice, dark fruits and liquorice; the palate is silky-smooth, with plum fruits, black olives and a lingering finish. An excellent all-rounder that would be perfect with turkey, beef or duck. JOHN WILSON, IRISH TIMES
Unquestionably the stand out wine of the tasting, Chemins has been kicking around the traps for a few months and is in an especially good place at the moment. It seems to have just folded into itself and settled in the last few months as the trademark elegance and refinement of the house comes to the fore.
Grenache is sometimes pissed off to be bottled and can seem a little unruly at first. This energy was welcome and it was a terrific wine but with the extra little bit of time it is now looking very swish and stylish.
Spring lamb would be the ultimate match. STSWine
