Dense inky black colour with a deep dark red black hue. Aromas of ripe black cherries and liquorice fill the nostrils with some meaty notes, scorched earth and peppered dried herbs also evident. Rich black cherry and liquorice fruits have a ripe chewy feel across the full bodied palate with scorched earth, dried meat and peppered herb characters lying underneath. A sturdy tannin structure lends some gentle firmness to the long robust finish.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews…..
Deeply colored, the 2018 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Rosine is a rich, powerful vintage for this cuvée, yet it has wonderful purity and finesse in its fruit and tannins. Value is the name of the game here, and this beauty will be ideal for readers who love Côte Rôtie yet not the price tag of Côte Rôtie. It’s going to keep for 7-8 years.
