Opening with smoky, flinty notes, the 2022 red Côte Roannaise Eclat de Granite is a straightforward pleasure. It's a tender, concise red, perfectly balanced between fruit and freshness, with a full, concentrated palate and delicate, tightly-packed tannins. It will evolve positively, but it still needs a little time, ideally until the delicate end of the year, for optimal tasting with a fine, tasty meat. Rated 92-93/100 by the Committee.
