Visan Côtes du Rhône Villages, Domaine Hipparion 2020
Deeply coloured with profound black berry aromas, enhanced with a touch of spice and notes of garrigue and liquorice. Quite a serious wine for this level with striking richness and weight. Grenache gives warmth and intensity here, whilst syrah adds depth, texture and dark bramble fruit. A sumptuous wine from the excellent 2020 vintage. Visan is very much a Rhône village to watch.
