I generally appreciate the CdR wines for consistency and value for money (though this bottle was a gift). This small appellation has provided a smooth uncomplicated delicious accompaniment to our winter beef stew this evening. Lovely deep plum/cherry colour but not a great deal on the nose. However, terrific cherry and hint of blackcurrant maybe blackberry and a very senior liqourice on the palate. Would buy this in preference to bigged up C du P's which are metaphorically just around the corner.
