2004 Domaine Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Elsewhere $35)

SKU #1025704

90 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely pure beam of red currant and red cherry fruit supported by hot stone and mineral notes. Hint of tobacco on the minerally finish. Should flesh out nicely in the near-term. Best from 2007 through 2017." (11/06) And, from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Smoky red fruit aromas are complicated by espresso and chocolate. Fresh and precise, with bitter cherry and anise flavors supported by firm tannins. Bright, persistent finishing flavor of tangy redcurrant." (Jan/Feb '07) The Beaurenard is one of those double-take deals that will have you checking to make sure that we didn't misprice this wine. Don't worry, it is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape and it is under $20! There are so many great things to say about this wine, but most important is how nicely it has developed over the last few years since its release. The wine shows layers of red fruit, fig paste, tobacco, cedar and a touch of leather on the finish. A hint of potpourri on the nose and this wine sings. This wine is so versatile, it will pair well with Indian, Moroccan or Middle Eastern cuisines beautifully. (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood)

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
