Hermitage ‘Les Donnieres’ 750ml 6 or 12 bottles
Dark and dense, with a terrific core of black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors, shrouded for now by roasted tobacco, chestnut, bay and tapenade notes. Shows loads of burly grip through the finish, but the flesh is there. Cellar for maximum effect.
