Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MAISON ROCHE DE BELLENE
Medium deep purple red colour. Fairly attractive, slightly spicy, ripe, fresh, plum-cherry purée nose. Dry, medium bodied, harmonious, very slightly spicy, elegant, bright, ripe plum-red-cherry flavours with a lingering, crisp, gently complex finish. Harmonious, ripe and ready-to-drink, this 2017 has 13% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. Certainly a big step up from the recommended 2010 (**) that was released on September 14, 2013 at a very modest $22.95. CSPC 344283
