1995 Fonsalette Cotes-du-Rhône

The ’95 Chateau de Fonsalette Cotes-du-Rhône is a black cherry bomb of scary intensity. Though track record would suggest that it will develop well for the next 10-20 years, it’s such a little slut-wine now that my Lolita-loving side can’t resist; my remaining bottles can count their lives in months, not decades.
