This is a really super wine, made from a lesser known IGP on the edge of the Cevennes, not far from Avignon and Nimes. One of the best value reds I have had of late.
Domaine Camp Galhan ‘Les Pérassières’ 2012 Vin de Pays Duché d’Uzès, Rhone, France
13.5% alcohol. A blend of fresh cherry fruit with some peppery, meaty notes. Refined with some olive tapenade colour. The palate is ripe but elegant with a meaty edge to the black cherry fruit, and some garrigue herby notes. Some violet floral notes too. It reminds me a bit of a top Touriga Nacional from the Dao in Portugal. So beautiful with lovely poise: ripe but defined. 93/100 (Yapp £10.25)
