2007 Domaine De La Charbonnière "Les Hautes Brusquières" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $60)

SKU #1316969 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 My favorite of the three single-vineyard releases, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that comes from the Brusquières parcel located in the northern part of the appellation. This full-bodied, ripe, sexy 2007 is loaded with notions of black cherries, black currants, licorice and roasted herbs. It has the most texture and richness in the lineup and is drinking spectacularly well today, and it will easily keep for another 10-15 years. (JD)  (2/2017)

 (60% grenache and 40% syrah) Vivid red. Bright, expressive bouquet of raspberry, blackcurrant, lavender and white pepper, plus a smoky Indian spice quality. Deep but impressively energetic red and dark berry flavors pick up notes of chewing tobacco and minerals with air. The finish repeats the red fruit and spice notes and lingers with impressive clarity and persistence. This is really lively for an example with so much syrah in the blend. (JR)  (1/2010)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Combines enticing plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit with black tea, tobacco, mineral and sandalwood notes. The long, fine-grained finish lets everything hang together nicely. Should blossom in the cellar. Drink now through 2027. (JM)  (10/2009)

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.
