      Laurent Miquel Vendanges Nocturnes Cinsault Syrah 2013

      …Not sure if this wine was as happy as it should be… Château des Sarrins Côtes de Provence Rosé 2013, France (£15.99 Bibendum, TheDrinkShop.com) Gave this plenty of time to settle before tasting, but on opening, it feels disjointed, with a slightly stinky sulphury overtone that’s still there two hours later.
