Domaine de Fontenille Côtes du Luberon 2007

Member Review by dynowine:

Delicious red wine with good balance between fruit, tannins, and acid; big but not over-the-top, somewhat rustic. Wine is slightly over-extracted and not filtered which enables it to reveal wonderful terroir including an herb-olive patina that would go great with regional cooking using similar herbs. Dark black and red fruits, deep color, slightly spicy, herbal, good volume in the mid-palate, aromatic on the attack. Suggest decant for 30-45 minutes and keep cool around 60 deg F for maximum enjoyment.

This wine has the deep fruit that you would expect from this terroir and a du Pape. Excellent wine for the price.
