Cotes du Rhone "Montagne de Raucoule" - Chateau Bizard

This blend of mainly Syrah with a dash of Grenache is about as indulgent as it gets with plums, raisins and dried strawberries on the nose. The palate is full and dense but with some pleasant herbaceous and slightly unripe character. The tannins are prevalent and frame a fine texture with hints of herbs and spices. Definitely a wine that needs a hearty meal on the side to soften the wondrous tannins!
