Wine tasting note: 1996 Chapoutier Coteaux d'Aix Matines

1996 Chapoutier Coteaux d'Aix Matines

15th Oct 1997 France Table Red

[50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Cab Sauv]
Even, purple/red to pink.
Forward nose with plenty of rich, tart fruit - no real promise of weight.
Medium to full bodied, flavours of spicy, peppery Grenache and cassis. High acidity, plenty of oak and green tannins.
Nicely balanced, fresh and crisp - best served lightly chilled.
