2007 Collection Alain Corcia "Cuvée Patricia" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1045785

93 points Robert Parker. "The dense ruby/plum/purple-tinged, full-bodied 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Patricia (named after his wife) reveals a ripe, opulent nose of lavishly concentrated red and black fruits, garrigue, pepper, flowers, and forest floor. This deep, rich, intense 2007 is already accessible, although it is capable of lasting for a decade." (10/09) 14% abv.

A big rich, smokey, gamey, meaty nose opens to more richness on the palate. This wine really drinks well now, but the tannins are still gritty and the wine will go at least another decade. This is a major cellar candidate for me as I try to decide how much will be enough.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.
