2012 Le Chat Noir Aude Valley Shiraz

LeChat_Shiraz_BVS-2011-LRSignificantly more impressive than the 2012 Le Chat Noir Chardonnay. Fruit forward and expressive. Incorporates 3% Viognier which is detectable in both fragrance and texture.

Black forest fruits, plums and vanilla cola. Succulent and spicy if not overly long or deep. The tannin is on the utilitarian side but it’s a keenly priced weeknight option. 89
