DOMAINE DU POUJOL 'Podio Alto' 2011, Gres de Monpellier Rouge
Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsaut
Beautifully balanced with bramble, elderberry and cherry fruit, and hints of oak. Full bodied with a mouth-filling finish. The structure and cherry fruit gives this wine a hint of Northern Italy. There is some tannin present that will soften over the coming years but it's drinking well now with roasts, steaks and cheese. And it will improve, and those with patience will be rewarded.
