Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2011

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A prime example, and a solid, classical effort that’s a blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape dishes out plenty of sweet kirsch, framboise, white pepper and garrigue to go with a medium-bodied, supple and nicely fruited palate. Already complex and evolved, it’s a delicious 2011 geared for drinking over the coming 4–5 years. Drink now–2019.

Ruby-red. Pungent, seductive perfume of dark berry preserves, blood orange, potpourri and spicecake. Silky and energetic but surprisingly dense, offering intense red and dark berry flavors and notes of licorice and candied lavender. This nicely balanced, already-delicious wine shows no excess fat, excellent finishing clarity and smooth, harmonious tannins that add grip.

A fruit-driven style, with lots of dark fig, blackberry and boysenberry flavors rolled together, backed by hints of clove, cinnamon and alder on the light toasty finish. Approachable now. Drink now through 2023.
