Wine tasting note: 1996 Chapoutier Hermitage Meal

1996 Chapoutier Hermitage Meal

15th Oct 1997 Rhone Table Red

[Barrel sample.]
Even, red/purple.
Meaty nose with spicy oak and truffle aromas.
Fleshy but remarkably smooth. Flavours of raspberries, tobacco, mulberries and tart cherries.
Superb now but still simple - best hidden away for 5 or more years.
