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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


External Review

Dark, chewy notes of black cherry, game and tobacco are lively and well integrated, feeling sophisticated and silky. The fruit's subtlety and complexity sets this wine apart, its components harmoniously balanced.

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.
