Editorial Reviews for Domaine Font de Michelle Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône

This offers up a classic nose of red cherry fruit accented with an Herbes de Provence nose, red candied licorice tones and a savory sun-dried tomato top note. Still youthful on the palate, this really captures the richness and brightness of the vintage with a smooth, slightly dense texture. Though not quite full-bodied, it is packed with sweet red cherry and toasted spice notes that seep out across the rather long finish. Really well balanced with good depth of flavor though if one wanted to nitpick, it does lack some complexity. 92pts

Robust, bold wine needs to be partnered with food that it won't overpower. Predominant notes: plum and cherry with a hint of tobacco. Best left to breathe. Delicious.

An elegant wine, with sweet cherry fruit and high floral notes that set the stage for a lush, silky palate infused with notes of raspberry sorbet and fall leaves. Lingering finish of vanilla and baking spices. Imported by Robert Kacher Imports.

High-toned up front, with floral and cherry licorice notes backed by a dash of sandalwood on the slightly dusty finish. Drink now.

Very ripe, with velvety layers of crushed plum and mulled blackberry fruit interwoven with bittersweet ganache, fruitcake and melted licorice. The long, dense, fleshy finish sails on nicely. Approachable now, thanks to the sleek structure, but better with a touch of cellaring. Best from 2010 through 2025.

Dark red. Fresh red berry are complemented by notes of dried rose, allspice and anise. Energetic raspberry and cherry flavors gain weight with air, taking a turn to deeper plum and bitter chocolate while maintaining vivacity. Soft tannins add structure and carry through the long, spicy finish. This is drinking well already.

A sleeper selection is the sexy 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. It offers plenty of spice box, fruitcake, and black cherry jam notes along with a creamy texture, and opulent, lush, silky tannins. The vintage’s lack of excessive heat spikes has provided freshness as well as terrific aromatics. Drink it over the next 7–8 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

[93 pts Stephen Tanzer] Deep red. Highly expressive aromas of red berries smoky herbs Asian spices and minerals. Smooth and silky with sweet raspberry and kirsch flavors and no obvious tannins. A seductive juicy wine that finishes with excellent breadth and precision. I suspect this will be alluring on release. --------- [Robert Parker] A sleeper selection is the sexy 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape.
