Clos Saint-Michel Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The reserve red is a chewy Chateauneuf with smoky roasted meat character, black cherries and kirsch, pepper, herbs (bayleaf, rosemary) and glycerin fruit. Rich, deep and generous, with a compelling sweetness of fruit and a lush, pliant texture. Finishes with firm but sweet tannins and a note of dark chocolate. This estate destems about 50% of its grapes, aims for high extraction and ages in foudres for about 12-16 months.

I really liked this wine. It was bursting with full bodied berry flavors and is long on the palate. Would pair it with a roast or perhaps a flame-broiled steak. I purchased a couple of bottles to cellar just to see how it will develop.

Four glasses

<p>Composed of 30% Grenache, 30% Clairette, 20% Roussanne, and 20% Bourboulenc, this white Ch&acirc;teauneuf-du-Pape is aged in thermo-controlled steel tanks for 3 weeks and then in barrels for 6 months. It can be drunk the year after its production, and will continue to improve over the next five. It is best with fish and white meats.</p>
