A good year, an even better wine

From the château that provided the set in the film, A Good Year...

Château la Canorgue, Luberon, 2011

Youthful deep core with scarlet and lilac rim. Intense perfume of fresh thyme and rosemary and sweet forest floor fruit. Well rounded palette like soft velvet with ripe grapes wrapped in sweet chocolate tannins and blue berries. Herbs and glycerol on the finish which is long and pure. We were told it would last for ten years but, when a wine tastes this good, why wait? 2.5* 9/ 10
