You really have to love that Christmas pudding scent on many of these Cotes du Rhone wines. My weakness is an acute memory of childhood where cold nights around Christmas were redolent with candied cherries, cranberry sauce and phosphate-style hard candy. This very good CdR from Alain Jaume has this quality plus a slightly angular edge on entry that would pair well with well-basted turkey. On the palate, this wine has some hardness that might soften with 2-3 years bottle aging. Nice round mouth-feel but could be a tad juicier. 87 points.

A perennial value, the 2004 Reserve Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne has a crisp nose of black cherries that leads to velvety cherry and black raspberry fruit flavors. It finishes long with spicy fruit and minerals.

Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and mocha aromas are brightened by baking spices and blond tobacco. Fresher on the palate, with energetic red fruit qualities and juicy acidity adding lift. Offers a nice marriage of ripeness and vivacity.

Juicy and friendly, with flavors of cherry compote and blackberry preserves offset nicely by violet and black tea notes. A streak of graphite keeps the finish fresh. Drink now through 2012.

The 2009 Cotes du Rhone Reserve (an identical blend) is soft, ripe, peppery, fruity, opaque ruby in color, with a more narrow palate. While excellent, this racy, reasonably priced wine has to take a backseat to the brilliant 2010.

For the last 7ndash;8 years, this has been one of the best-run estates in Chateauneuf du Pape. Alain Jaume and his two capable sons, Sebastien and Christophe, continue to propel Domaine Grand Veneur into the upper echelon of quality. The 2003 Cotes du Rhone Reserve is a sleeper of the vintage. Wonderfully sweet raspberry and black currant fruit jumps from the glass of this wine, which exhibits superb density, rich, full-bodied flavors, but with purity and elegance. This is a super value as well and should drink well for another 3ndash;4 years.

Produced from 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault, the elegant 2003 Cotes du Rhone exhibits a gorgeous perfume of berry fruit, melted licorice, and pepper followed by a medium to full-bodied, tasty red with enough acidity to provide definition. Drink it over the next 2ndash;4 years.

The 2009 Cotes du Rhone Reserve (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault) exhibits a leafy/garrigue/Provencal character intermixed with raspberry and black cherry fruit. The sweetness of the tannins, plump, medium-bodied style, and touch of pepper result in a classic Candocirc;tes du Rhandocirc;ne to drink over the next several years.
