Great showing for this. Tasted over two nights with little change. Of course, 2015 is young and a great vintage in the northern Rhone. Purple in color. The nose is pretty classic if a bit riper than typical. Black raspberry fruit with spice along side some bacon fat, slight grilled meats and black pepper. On the palate, this has a lovely rich texture. Good acidity to balance that out. Black raspberry fruit with an underlying crushed rock and slight roasted herbs. Primary now but it unwinds in the glass. A step up from a recent 2012 of this wine I had. Not yet at peak, this needs a few more years but drinking great now. Easily a decade left. Works well with roasted foods including veggies.
