Chateau de la Grande Gardiole, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, 2010

011A really light and lovely red, somewhat ethereal compared to expectations and recent heavy South American reds we’ve been drinking.  Cherry, vanilla, licorice, wood, sharp tannins which mellow on the palate, a long finish reminiscent of clove and rosewater.  This has time to spare; keep it on the shelf if you have a shelf (and self discipline).

 

Price: Gifted, but $35 at BCL (and, at that price, despite the fact we liked it, we’ll pass)

 

Market Liquidity: Everyday plonk, I guess, for the 1%-ers.
