Domaine d'Andézon Côtes du Rhône 2005

Member Review by Salmanazar132:

It is an amazing bargain, deep ruby/purple with wonderfully sweet blackberry and cherry fruit as well as kirsch-like fruit with licorice, spice, and a bit of a floral note. The wine is opulent, full-bodied, and a fabulous bargain.

Why is Syrah fast becoming the world's most popular red grape? One sip of the wine will let you know. Unlike most Cotes du Rhones that blend Grenache and Syrah, this Domaine D'Andezon is pure Syrah, from about 50 year old vines, bottled unfiltered. In a blind tasting it could easily be mistaken for an Aussie Shiraz with its very lively nose of dark fruits including plums and berries, but the good acidity indicates a cooler growing climate and gives it an excellent concentration. Very food friendly.

A big step up from the Côtes-du-Rhône bottling, this villages wine is brimming with ripe stone fruits - peaches and cherries - accented by chocolate and spice. Silky tannins weave the flavors effortlessly across the palate, while the finish lingers elegantly. A winner from the co-op of Estézargues.

The 2009 Domaine d'Andezon (90% Syrah and 10% Grenache) is a tank-fermented and aged, unfined/unfiltered cuvee made only for the American market from 50-year-old vines. It offers explosive notes of smoky bacon fat, cassis, and blackberries, a deep, rich, chewy style, and an exuberant, flashy personality. With unbelievable flavor intensity and personality for its price, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next several years.

A blend of 90% Syrah (40-year old vines) and 10% Grenache (60-year old vines), the tank-fermented and aged 2007 Cotes du Rhone exhibits sweet blackberry and cassis fruit interwoven with notions of spring flowers, licorice, and road tar. It possesses a lovely texture, crisp acids (a characteristic of this vintage), medium to full body, and a long, smooth finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

This tank-fermented blend of 90% Syrah (40-year old vines) and 10% Grenache (60-year old vines) exhibits gorgeous floral, blackberry, licorice, lavender, and roasted Provençal herb-like notes. In the mouth, it reveals flavors of sweet cherry and blackberry fruit in a silky, medium-bodied, pure, long style. This is an amazing bargain!

[Today's review is brought to you by the letter 'A'] From an appealing appellation, another awesome attempt by an ambitious assembler. Attractive appearance accompanied by astonishing accents. An amazing array of aromas atop appropriate acidity. Almost admirable aging. Alluring and articulate. Antithesis of austere and acrid. Ample applause. Anyone agree?

There are 4,000 cases of the 2004 Cotes du Rhone, a tank-fermented and aged blend of 80% Syrah (40-year old vines) and 20% Grenache (60-year old vines). Deep ruby/purple-hued with loads of cassis fruit, blackberries, and a hint of charcoal, this fleshy, fat, attractive 2004 is ideal for restaurants and consumers seeking a delicious, personality-filled, inexpensive red that can be drunk over the next 1-2 years.
