Clotaire Michal, La Napoléon, 2016

RRP £13

Michal used to work in Cornas, and there’s definitely a hint of the northern Rhône in the glass, which probably comes from 40-year-old vines on sandy granitic soils. Fresh and focused, with lovely concentration of vivid red cherry and raspberry fruit. This is direct and structured, with a grainy, savoury edge.
