Le Grand Noir Red Rhone Blend Vin de Pays d'Oc Gsm 2007

Member Review by Gilfaethwy:

This month (April 2011) I did a comparison of this with another red, an Italian (Zonin Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2009). This was the loser. Perhaps it is still not ready... it was rather tannic still, and had very little fruit in comparison with the Montepulciano, despite the varietals used (Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre) which one would think would give the finished wine a nice fruitiness. Quite austere by comparison with the other wine, and yet not very complex. It may improve with another year or two in bottle. I rated the Montepulciano four stars -- this will receive three. But bears watching, or rather, repeat tastings in a year or two.
