2008 Clos Chanteduc COTES DU RHONE (65% Grenache, 35% Syrah) (France)

Very straightforward, although well made. It just didn't spark anything more than casual interest.

Dark ruby with magenta highlights. Clean, moderately fragrant nose of plummy, blackberry fruit and high-toned, Pez-inflected rock dust. Soft, mouthfilling, fruity, and direct, with full body and decent acid balance. No complexity to speak of, but has a nice, clean finish with a tiny bit of bitterness and tannin noticeable in the finish. B-. Imported by Eric Solomon. Was $18 at
