M. Chapoutier Pinteivera 2011
Ripe and spicy, with a concentrated core of damson plum, molten chocolate and dark cherry flavors, showing notes of tar and mocha. A firm, dense and rich-tasting Douro red that should age well. Best from 2014 through 2018. 300 cases imported.
From Rhône producer, M. Chapoutier, this is a new venture. The style is elegant while also powerful and complex. It brings out strong minerality, black currant fruit and tense acidity, resulting in a wine for aging. Drink from 2016.
