Vignobles Verzier, Chante-Perdrix, Empreinte, St-Joseph 2013
Bright, spicy nose with soft notes of blackberries and medicinal herbs. Characterful palate of fresh blackcurrants underpinned by a touch of tarry liquorice and rounded out by milk chocolate oak. The rustic feel is carried through the clean, herbal finish.
