Domaine Marquis Ravardel Châteauneuf du Pape 2011

I didn’t spend a lot of time analysing this wine, finding it eminently gluggable at a barbeque with friends.  It’s a budget Châteauneuf-du-Pape that has aromatics of anise, plum and bitter almond.  The palate has chunky tannins and flavours reminding of plums, with the fruit a little extracted.  The wine achieves balance and an easy drinkability.  Good
