Reason why St Chinian has its own AOC! Intense, full bodied and complex, deep aroma and palate. Dried plums, blackcurrant, savoury sundried tomatoes, liquorice, spices. Blackberries, cherries and herbal aromas. Medium soft tannins.
Brilliant richness and depth of fruit. pure but friendly and generous too. Not austere. Also watching Chelsea get beaten makes it taste even sweeter.
A bid acid with blackberry and light casis. Recommendable.
