2007 Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1046365

91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Rich red and dark berry liqueur aromas are complicated by white pepper, garrigue and smoky minerals. Refreshing, delineated raspberry and black cherry flavors show impressive depth without excess weight, thanks to fresh mineral snap on the back. There's a pinot noir-like elegance and purity to this wine that's quite alluring." (Jan/Feb '09) And, according to Robert Parker: "...With lots of old-vine Grenache characteristics clearly present in this soft, attractive, kirsch-dominated wine. It has a deep ruby/plum color, notes of resin interwoven with pepper, garrigue, and plenty of black cherry and strawberry. This is lush, elegant, and almost Burgundian in its focus and overall personality. It should drink nicely for 10-15 years." (10/08) ETA for this wine is late fall 2009.

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.
