Wine tasting note: 1996 Chapoutier Saint Joseph Deschants

1996 Chapoutier Saint Joseph Deschants

15th Oct 1997 Rhone Table Red

[Barrel Sample. 100% Syrah]
Dense, even, purple to pink/purple.
Full, deep, perfumed nose of black berries and blue cheese.
Heavy with juicy berry fruit and high acidity.
Needs time to knit - the palate doesn't live up to the nose, but should develop nicely.
