Roucas Toumba Pichot Roucas Vdp de Mediterannee 2008

Member Review by Mips:

Drinking this by itself, enjoying the evening air & the sunset...it won't be the wine enjoyed. The tannins or something are too strong, even with aeration. There is some fruit to the nose and taste but the tannins are very strong - at least at this time. However add some aged cheddar cheese cubes to the picture to even out the tannins enabling you to enjoy the wine. Cheese definitely mellows it out. It has enough structure to hold up to the cheese. It definitely not something I want by itself. I found a way to enjoy it, to finish the bottle. I won't be looking for another one. 2 glass rating averages the with cheese & without cheese tastings.
