Tasting: La Gramiere 2007

I’ve started posting some tasting notes again as I have been meaning to do for ages. I’m hoping this will go automatically in future, but here’s last night’s post:

La Gramière 2007
produced by Domaine de La Gramiere in Cotes du Rhone Villages region, France
Note: Looks young, with purple, red fruit in the glass, and the nose is dark and brooding. However, the first taste was bright – like a blast of cherry flavoured lifesavers, followed by a dusting of soft, ripe tannins and deliciously tart berry flavours. Still young, but vibrant and alive. A great tipple
Food pairing: lightly grilled lamb
(Tasted on August 29, 2010)
