I've raved on many times about the ageworthy qualities of Domaine Sainte Anne. And here is another example.
The color is a deep youthful crimson, and only the sediment on one side of the bottle betrays its age. From the first sniff, there is a great fruit presence--crushed red raspberries on a background of Provencal herbs. Beautiful. Summer pudding richness on the palate. Great depth for a fruit-oriented wine. Typical of the estate, it's never showed much tannin but always good size and strength.
