Gorgeous aromas of warm cocoa, mesquite and fig sauce are followed by a rich, silky palate that lets dark fruit, graphite, Turkish coffee and bittersweet cocoa run through the lengthy finish. This is not shy about its toast, but it's well-integrated. Best from 2010 through 2028. 60 cases imported.
Fresh, elegant and layered, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Boisrenard from the Coulon brothers is a field blend dominated by Grenache, yet includes all 13 permitted varieties. Destemmed, vinified in oak tanks and aged 18 months in small foudre, this beauty offers a terrific bouquet of black currants, smoked herbs, charred meat, creosote and licorice; while there’s a modern slant to the profile here, it still shows terrific southern Rhône soul. Medium-bodied to full-bodied, fresh, elegant and pure, with a youthful feel, it’s can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade. (JD)
Vivid red. Sexy scents of black raspberry, garrigue, minerals and rose. Nervy strawberry and raspberry flavors are impressively concentrated and focused, gaining richness with air. The finish is invitingly juicy, with lingering red fruit flavors.
Blackish purple. Concentrated claret style. Thick and tarry – almost burnt. An exaggeration of a wine – elixir of Châteauneuf? Wait and wait for this special bottling of all 13 cepages allowed! (17+/20 Score)
