Cellier des Gorges de l'Ardeche Marselan 2016

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £8 from the website www.vinatis.co.uk. It is from the Ardeche area in the Rhone valley and made by a co-operative group.It is a Vin de Pays designation or IGP as that is now called and is a single varietal wine. It is made from marselan,a cross between cabernet sauvignon and grenache created in the 1960's.I started it the other night with my supper of meat pie.There is some blackberry style fruit but the overiding impresion is of how dry,tight and austere it is.It was little changed on the second evening.Perhaps it would have been better with a few more years bottle age. Others must have liked this wine more than me because it got a gold medal at the Concours General Agricole in Paris in 2017
