2007 M. Chapoutier "Les Granits" St-Joseph Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1054264

92-95 points Robert Parker: "The full-bodied 2007 St.-Joseph Les Granits exhibits sweet black currant fruit, camphor, rock, and exotic Asian spice characteristics. With slightly less density and weight than the 2006, it should drink nicely for 10-15 years." (04/09) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices, with smoked meat and anise nuances. Really alluring on the palate, with a silky texture to the sweet red and dark berry flavors. Picks up an exotic candied flower quality on the back end to go with notes of sweet red fruit and violet pastille. This is delicious right now." (Jan/Feb 2010) 92 points Wine Spectator:" This has depth for the vintage, with plum sauce, violet, blackberry and mulled cherry notes laced with incense and graphite. The long finish has a nice velvety feel, with a buried iron note buried. Drink now through 2012." (04/10)

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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
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.
