A gorgeous effort that has fabulous aromatics and textural richness, the 2009 Cotes du Rhone dishes out the classic kirsch liqueur, ground pepper, forest floor, lavender and spice-box aromas that always seem present in Emmanuel’s wines. Full-bodied, silky and seamless, with a voluptuous yet incredibly pure profile, it is an up-front, seductive effort that should continue to shine through 2019. Drink now-2019. (JD)
Deep red. A powerful, deeply scented bouquet evokes red and dark berries, star anise, cinnamon and pungent flowers. Packs a serious punch but there's no excess fat here; the intense raspberry and blackberry flavors show excellent clarity and a hint of candied lavender. Finishes bright and precise, with the raspberry and floral notes carrying through. This wine transcends its category and will appeal greatly to those who prize balance over brute force.
