A dignified old gal. Subtle gamey, earthy and flowery notes and surprising density for a CdP of its age. Pretty splendid.

70% #garnacha 15 #cinsault 10 #syrah And 5 #monastrell #gsm #france #rhone hardly present in the nose. While also quite subtle on the palate. It does seem elegant and soft. It seems to have a woman's touch. Caroline Frey doesn't disappoint here. Basically it's an affordable #chateauneufdupape

Lovely, mature, one of those fascinating wines that starts out with some oxidation, then freshens up with air. Spicy, aromatic, a pleasure.
