Wine tasting note: 1996 Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche

1996 Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche

15th Oct 1997 Rhone Table Red

[100% Grenache]
Fairly deep, even, red.
Restrained nose with some berry fruit.
Rich and dark, medium to full bodied wine with ripe flavours of black fruits and strawberries, creamy oak and good acidity. Quite light but reasonably long finish.
Very pleasant if a bit obvious.
