Wine tasting note: 1995 Chapoutier Coteaux d'Aix Beates

1995 Chapoutier Coteaux d'Aix Beates

15th Oct 1997 France Table Red

[50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Cab Sauv]
Deep red/purple to red.
Mature nose with spicy, black fruit and game aromas.
Medium to full bodied with high acidity, ripe black fruits, smoke and toasted oak. Lots of hard tannin evident in a long, dry finish. Cabernet Sauvignon seems to dominate.
Good but a bit hard - maybe with food?
