What’s in the glass tonight March 16th – Saint-Chinian

Ch. Saint-Cels

Off Topic: Ch. Saint-Cels Saint-Chinian 2014 – $

Imported direct from the co-op by Regional Wines and Spirits.

Dark carmine. 13.5% alcohol.

Initial brooding tannic dark fruit and sweet confectionery on the nose.

In the mouth smooth and rich, with ripe fruit, licorice and cocoa characters, minerals and a bright spicy finish.

This was a bright cheery easy-drinking red with enough to interest the palate. On the 2nd night after standing in bottle, the wine evolved to show charming savoury pinot-like notes on the nose. Nice one.
