Color not so dark, shiny. Discreet nose on the red fruits (gooseberry). Good in palate, without heaviness or warmth of alcohol. A touch of spices and licorice. Nice acidity without aggressive tannins.

Good, fresh wine... the Jaboulet was better of the '05 vintage.

Juicy and pure, with the vintage's textbook flavor profile of raspberry and licorice, backed by a graphite hint on the finish. Drink now through 2007.

Chapoutier appears to be building more stuffing into his bottom line Côtes du Rhône as evidenced by the 2000 Belleruche. A blend of equal parts Syrah and Grenache, it exhibits a deep ruby color as well as a sweet nose of black fruits, licorice, herbes de Provence, and earth. Tangy acidity provides definition and crispness to this medium-bodied, fruit-driven effort. It should drink well for two years.

Nice pebbly, minerally undertow in this red, with blackberry and red currant fruit followed by tar and floral notes. Well-structured finish. Drink now through 2007.

A blend of Syrah and Grenache, if offers aromas and flavors of berries and cherries, tangy underlying acidity, fine elegance and finesse, and a floral, fruity quality. Pure and refreshing, it is best drunk over the next 2-3 years.

Soft and plummy, a wine of medium body that tastes a bit mature, with forest underbrush, fresh mushrooms and wet earth. Turns quite chewy and tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2005.

The 2006 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche is a strong effort in this vintage from Michel Chapoutier. The wine is already delicious, showing notes of plum, black currant, and cherry in a straightforward, fruity style with good body and seductive aromatics. It is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah and should drink well for 4-5 years.

This is a well known name in the wine industry, owning wineries throughout the Rhône Valley One can pretty much guarantee a good wine from this family. This Rhône is predominantly Grenache, grown in clay and sandy soil, in an arid climate. The produces a wine with peppery dry cherry fruit and great flavor. A great wine; look for the bottle with a Braille label.
