Cave de Tain Cornas Les Arenes Sauvages
Cave de Tain Cornas Les Arenes Sauvages - This is a serious bottle of wine with plenty of structure and shape but also with plenty of plush fruit to justify it. Deep dark red with an intense nose of raspberries, spice and a hint of graphite. The palate has more black fruits (blackberry and cherry), pepper and toast. Approachable but evident tannins and for drinking now but with the potential to age very well.
Excellent with gamey red meats, mature hard cheeses or dark chocolate - Valrhôna of course.
The southernmost red cru of the Northern Rhône so more full-bodied and spicy.
Sold in single bottles
