2004 Calvet-Thunevin "Les Dentelles" Côtes du Roussillon Villages (Previously $48)

SKU #1070283

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 2004 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Les Dentelles a blend of Grenache and Carignan (presumably with the legally requisite splash of Syrah) displays a sweetly enticing nose of candied essences of cassis, black raspberry, mint, caramel and chocolate. Undeniably sweet and flamboyant in its oak-engendered accents of vanilla, toast, and coconut, this seamlessly rich Roussillon red is remarkably polished and viscous in texture and lingering in finish. But close attention reveals underlying suggestions of firm tannin and stoniness, and it will be most interesting to chart its evolution over the next several years." (David Schildknecht Wine Advocate # 173 October, 2007)

Beautiful. Huge fruit yet spicy nose, all those cliches about earthiness. Not overpowering though, great acidity & finish. Unbelievable value at $15.

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.
