2009 Domaine Vindemio "Amadeus" Côtes du Ventoux (Previously $23)

SKU #1072988

93 points Robert Parker: "The flagship cuvee, the superb 2009 Amadeus (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah from their oldest estate vineyards – over 60 years of age) boasts a dark ruby/purple hue as well as an exquisite perfume of boysenberries, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and spice. Full-bodied and fleshy with beautiful intensity, purity, texture, and length, it should drink well for 5-7 years or longer. Formerly known as Domaine Murmurium (an estate that garnered favorable reviews from this publication a decade ago), this property was purchased by Murmurium’s winemaker and a group of friends after the estate collapsed economically. Resurrected as Domaine Vindemio, the current owners are fashioning some super bargains meant for serious wine consumers." (08/10) 15% abv.

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.
