NOTE: This is the "Champauvins" wine but with a different label and a back label which reads "Selected by the Big Red Wine Company".
The Grenache part of the 2009 "Champauvins" has a pretty nose, sweet fruit, big for a Côtes du Rhône. A second vat showed similar fruit but with sweetness and intensity pitched differently. The Syrah is quite restrained at first, very black and tannic. Ageworthy, a real mini-Chateauneuf.
