2009 Comte Louis de Clermont-Tonnerre (Alain Corcia) "Cuvée André Eleazar" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1063244

90-93 points Robert Parker: "The 2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Andre Eleazar (named after Corcia’s father, who passed away in 1978) is an equal part blend of Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache. This is his most structured, masculine, and ageworthy wine, with a dark plum/purple color and sweet notes of fresh mushrooms, tree bark, blueberry, black raspberry, and cherry, as well as some licorice and charcoal in the background. It is medium to full-bodied, relatively tannic, and needs a good 2-3 years of bottle age. It should drink well for 10-15 years. (10/10) 14% abv.

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.
