Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf du Pape 2015

Member Review by ILoveWine18:

I did some mail order wine purchasing last year and the place where I bought the wine highly recommended it. I bought a half dozen bottles, and then a half dozen more. For a low-priced CduP, it's incredible.

Still fairly tight. Getting some plums, and a dried flower smell on the nose. Flavors include plums and raspberries, with dusty tannins. This could probably improve greatly with another couple years of bottle time.

At only eight hectares in size, this miniscule, ultra-traditional estate produces tiny quantities of just one wine: no luxury cuvee, no specialty blend, just a stunningly pure and complex Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Owner Claude Courtil is the godson of none other than Henri Bonneau, one of the most legendary and revered producers in the region, and he learned everything he knows about winemaking from his godfather. Henri and Claude share a deeply held commitment to natural winemaking: manual vineyard work, traditional aging in large foudres, and bottling without intrusive fining and filtration. A reserved, introspective man, Courtil sold his entire production to negociants until the 1996 vintage, and he has been producing steadily more impressive and complete wine ever since -- though the '96 is an extremely gorgeous Chateauneuf in its own right! This is truly a special domaine, and one that is extremely deserving of your attention. The blend consists of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. - Winery

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. 7,000 cases made. -JM 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.

(68% grenache, 15% mourvedre, 13% syrah and 4% cinsault): Bright purple. Powerful, deeply pitched aromas of cherry compote, licorice and spicy underbrush. Sweet, fleshy and focused, showing good heft to its ripe cherry, smoky plum and cassis flavors. Finishes dense, minerally and long, with very smooth tannins. This wine is showing more power than I usually expect from this estate. The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape displayed slightly higher potential last year. Nevertheless, it is an excellent effort exhibiting a deep plum/ruby color, an evolved style for this vintage and elegant, plum, peppery, black raspberry and cherry notes intermixed with herb and loamy soil characteristics. While medium-bodied and pleasurable, I expected more intensity and richness. Drink it over the next decade. - Robert Parker 88+ Points ** Only 7 in Stock **
