Domaine de la Bastide, Côtes du Rhône, Rhône, France, 2016
(at En primeur tastings, Rhône, 08 Oct 2017)
Drinking Window: 2017 - 2019
Fresh dark berry fruits on a medium to full-bodied palate. It's tight and dynamic with plenty of young, snappy tannin, ripe acidity and bags of energy leading to a fairly long finish. There's nothing overdone, just really drinkable and expressive. Well balanced and well made.
