2004 Delas Freres "Seigneurs Maugiron" Côte Rotie (Elsewhere $75)

SKU #1077138

According to Robert Parker: "The 2004 Cote Rotie Seigneur de Maugiron has a dark ruby color and a nice herbal nose with pure cherry notes intermixed with hints of espresso, dried herbs, and spice. It is pure, medium-bodied, lacking great concentration, but well-made and put together in an elegant, mid-weight style. Drink it over the next 5-7 years." (04/07) According to the Wine Spectator: "Supple and focused, with alluring black cherry and currant fruit intertwined with mocha, sanguine and iron notes. The finish is long and fine-grained. Has nice length and depth for the vintage. Drink now through 2011." (05/07) According to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Mineral-accented red berry and cherry aromas are clean and bright. Quite stony on the palate, with vibrant redcurrant and spicy cherry flavors and a deep espresso note on the back. This silky-smooth, sweet wine finishes long and elegant, with very fine tannins. You could drink this now. " (Jan/Feb 2007)

Ruby in the glass. The nose is a mixed bag of dark cherry, roasted espresso, peppery spices & tilled soil. This is rich & chewy with plenty of tannin & acid still evident. I really enjoy these flavors & I look forward to pairing this with BBQ'd pork ...

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.
