Wine tasting note: 1996 Chapoutier Crozes Hermitage Meysonniers

1996 Chapoutier Crozes Hermitage Meysonniers

15th Oct 1997 Rhone Table Red

[Barrel sample.]
Opaque purple to purple/red.
Dense nose with quite hot aromas of gooseberry leaves, aniseed, spice and pepper.
Full bodied, inky, ripe and spicy with cedary oak. Leathery tannins coming through on the finish.
Again too young to tell - doesn't yet live up to the nose.
