Substantial VA gives the impression of phenolic immaturity. Light cranberry fruit hangs over reflection of smoked meats lost. Hidden eucalyptus, bay leaf, white pepper resolution.

Tired and maybe a victim of not so great storage, the Hermitage character was buried in there, barely.

Sad showing of this wine despite the great terroir. This was a bad stretch for this iconic northern rhone (from 1992 until very recently)

Good red fruit and floral nose. Well structured and soft texture but not as big as I would've thought.
