Julien Pilon Cote Rotie La Porchette 2013 This has been opened 48 hours ago. Dark purple with beetroot edges. Sappy, and almost port-like on the nose. On day one it was all cherry cola and frivolity, on the second day it showed more balance and restraint and today it is long on the start with a great sweet/sour balance of the fruit and a good grip on the follow-through. It's a lovely and quite light CR, which may not be entirely typical but I quite like. It should get better in the next 5 years or more, though it is quite enjoyable now.
