St Joseph Coursodon Silice, 2007

When should you drink a wine? This wine was purchased from the Wine Society (£17) in about 2011. As they put it ‘this is Coursodon’s cuvée of younger vines and for more immediate drinking. His 2007 has an abundance of easy charm in a lovely fruity style… to 2013’.  This is a typically very conservative drinking window as the wine is indeed fruity and spicy but with no traditional signs of age, such as a brown edge in the glass or fading on day two. I found some reviews on Cellartracker – my preferred source of such information, which said it was ready but not past it, as it proved.

I’ve no doubt that the wine will stay at this level for several years but it’s my only bottle unfortunately…
