M. CHAPOUTIER Hermitage "Monier de la Sizeranne" 2001
Wine Region: Rhone Valley - France Grape: Syrah
Tasting notes: The nose has aromas of red fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant), with a hint of liquorice. Good attack, round and elegant wine with concentrated and gentle tannins. The final is on blackcurrant, raspberry and spicy (pepper) aromas when it is young.
