Chateau De Valcombe "Les Pins" Costieres de Nimes 2007
Region: Costieres de Nimes, Southern Rhone, France
Winery: Chateau De Valcombe
Variety: Syrah (60%), Grenache (40%)
In many ways, this is very like the Chateau's "Prestige" cuvee, but brighter and lacking the earthier and more oak-driven characteristics. Blackberry, dark cherry, and plum with restrained notes of white pepper and something reminiscent of thyme. The straight-forward youthfulness here is both refreshing and very satisfying.
