quite a full red robe, with lustre. The bouquet is discreet, shapely, centres on raspberry fruit with an inviting tone of sweetness. There’s a hint of reduction, so air will aid its clarity. The palate is soft, graceful, bears very tasty red berry fruit with a squeezy texture that pleases, notes of fine grain tannin on the close, and pockets of florality woven inside. The front palate works extremely well, is savoury and wholesome, and sets a very good tone for the wine. It can offer more openly with time, is well measured, en finesse Cairanne, a Thinkers Wine, rewards study. 14.5°. €15 at cellars. 2030-32 Sept 2020
