Anyone who doesn’t take tannat seriously needs to try this wine. Wild blueberries, their soft flesh almost tangible, get just a touch of acid on the tongue and then a tiny alkaline kick in the finish, with cameos from more herbal and meaty flavors along the way. For fans of the darkest of the dark – we’re talking Cornas here – this concentrated wine will be pure pleasure. Take your time between sips, as the wine lasts and lasts
