Tasting - Ample and surprisingly fleshy for this rather 'wet' vintage in the southern Rhone. Peppery and meaty with a deliciously refreshing tang of blackberry jam and lavender. Akin to many Chateauneuf du Pape's that cost twice as much.
Isolation Pairing: Descaling the kettle
FYI: Joncier's proprietor-winemaker Marine Roussel was featured in the first season of Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure on BBC2 back in 2007.
