Piccinini Terralbo OuestRed WineWine Tasting Note:Domaine Piccinini Terralbo Ouest, 2001, Minervois, France.
Available from Pic Wines for £12.85. [more info]
A obvious 'with red meats' wine but it is just so smooth and silky that is was a joy to drink on its own; a joy that is until we realised that one bottle is just not enough!

Although big and full-bodied it's perhaps a touch too soft for anything long lasting, the tannins are there mind along with a good dollop of acidity to cut through the richness and give a lifting blackcurrant sharpness on the finish. Predominantly Syrah (70%) which supplies a lovely spice along with Carignan (20%) and Cinsault (10%) that combine to give a touch of roasted coffee beans plus "dark bitter chocolate and sweet cassis" as Pic Wines describe it.

Scribblings Rating - 90/100
