2019 M. Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche, Rhone, France (750 ml)
The wine is a deep garnet red color. The aromas are intense, fruity (blackcurrant/ raspberry) and complemented by notes of white pepper. On the palate, this wine is juicy, powerful and fruity (red fruits notes) on the palate, with lovely roasted notes. There are silky and delicate tannins.
Shards of graphite etch peppery freshness into this fruity blend of mainly Grenache and Syrah. Raspberry and black-currant flavors are ripe but pristine, highlighted by spry acidity and fine, chalky tannin's. Ready now, the wine should drink well through 2025.
