2009 Les Clos Perdus "Prioundo" Corbières (Previously $17)

SKU #1066092

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The nose is well defined with strawberry, black tea, a touch of rosemary and thyme, the fruit dialled down a few notches. The palate is medium bodied and light on its feet, fine tannins, an edgy bitterness that lends it tension and freshness. Harmonious with raspberry, a touch of black pepper and garrigues towards the finish. Excellent. Drink now-2013.

Love this wine. Earthy with great red fruit underneath and mouthwatering acidity and tannins. One of those wines you can't stop drinking. Great with food.

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.
