Chant Du Midi Syrah 2008 (Minervoise, France)
13.5%, Screwcap, $21
From Minervois and proudly wearing the rusticity of the region with pride.
Neutral, dirt and old oak nose. Slightly meaty, pongy and simple. Looks authentic but also rather dull, confected and simple.
Nice wine for a tenner but no more.
Would I buy it? No.
