1989 Domaine de Chante Perdrix Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #960295 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Chante-Perdrix's 1989 is one of the vintage's most decadently rich and exotic wines. I bought several cases because it was such a super value. The wine still reveals a healthy dark ruby/purple color, followed by a splendidly intense bouquet of dried flowers, jammy black fruits, Asian spices, smoke, and Provencal herbs. Full-bodied and lavishly rich, with a voluptuous texture, layers of fruit that ooze over the palate, this viscous, super concentrated, luscious Chateauneuf du Pape has been delicious since birth. It shows no signs of decline. Given its size it should continue to drink well for another decade. A thrilling glass of Chateauneuf du Pape! (RP)  (12/1996)

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
