Domaine des Sénéchaux Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine des Sénéchaux is currently the most exciting property inChâteaunuef du Pape. The reason? It has been purchased by Jean MichelCazes of Lynch Bages fame in Bordeaux. Jean Michel and his son Jean Charleshave recognised the outstanding quality of the terroir, with its trademarkpudding stones and decorative old vines, and have adopted the clever strategyof consultation to ensure that the essence and personality of the wine is notfundamentally changed. As a result the wine is made in a similar way and itsmake up remains as before (65% Grenache, 15 % each of Syrah andMourvèdre and a hint of both Cinsault and Counoise).

What a pretty beast. The nose is nice but does not give very much away: strawberry, vanilla, white chocolate and minerals suggest a pretty - if maybe a little unexciting - wine. Not so. On the palate it is absolutely delicious with concentrated strawberry and licorice as well as toasty oak. For a few seconds the beautiful sweetness lingers, and then it gives you a mean kick! The tannins are fierce. They grip and bite your tongue! Does it have character? Loads. But it leaves you with a bitter goodbye.
