"Red robe. There is an oily inset of soaked cherries [griottes], a juvenile glisten to the bouquet, red fruit jelly. The palate attacks on thick juice, holds tightly packed content with butty tannins sealed into its main frame. It lengthens surely, with pockets of fluid fruit, some well-handled vigour. This is genuine, well made Châteauneuf with refined juice."
