TN: One Montagnette in time

[vineyard]Les Vignerons d’Estézargues “Domaine la Montagnette” 2004 Côtes-du-Rhône (Rhône) – Ripe blackberry layered with vanilla and showing thin stripes of light green, which is more complexing than underripe. A pleasant, simple wine, but it’s a little slicked-up for my tastes. And yet, there’s a hint of brett as well. So: slick, but in need of a little disinfectant. (1/07)
