Why Big Red Diary?

2007 Roty Philippe, Marsannay Champs St.EtienneApr. 2010
Again a wide panorama of aromas, of not though is that this is has a more red-fruit character than the previous wines. Very silky in the mouth, though you finish with a hint of astringency. The fruit flavours are also a little ‘redder’. Not as ‘big’ as the Marsannay Quartier, but a little finer.
1999 Roty Philippe, Marsannay Champs St.EtienneMar. 2006
Medium ruby colour. Starts with a little cigarette-ash but the nose soon bursts into life with gorgeous, haunting red fruits – lovely. The palate is not on the same level as the nose, but has some sweetness, nice acidity too. Basically very simple except for that haunting nose.
