Bid on this bottle of 1988 Château de Fonsalette "Réservé - Cuvée Syrah" Côtes-du-Rhône. One whiff of this rare beauty and you might believe there's a hunk of roasted meat in the bottle, but no, that's just exquisite Syrah grown by the hands of a master— famous/infamous proprietor Jacques Reynaud who died in 1997, but made wine right up untill the end. Rumor has it the vines stemmed from cuttings taken from J.L. Chave's Hermitage vineyard, and like Chave's Hermitage, this tiny production wine is practically immortal. Aside from meat, you'll find truffles, smoky sweet cassis and blackberry fruit and a peppery finish that truly delights.
