>Wine Tasting Note: Clos Montels Rouge, 2004, Vin de Table, France.
Not too sure where you can buy this from, the price and, as it is a Vin de Table, there is no indication of where it is from exactly. But even though it has a lowly designation it is actually a jolly decent drop. Very plummy colour, nose offers a little inky, peppery fruit while the palate is full-bodied with a nice layer of tannin. Deep, squishy blackfruits mingle with spice and ink flavours while the finish is juicy and ripe. All in all rather good for a basic table wine! Alcohol 13.5%. A blend of 46% Syrah and 54% Carignan.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
