Domaine Ruffinatto Cotes du Luberon 2004

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for ten pounds when I visited a gentleman in Sussex who usually sells wine he buys from house clearances on the www.bidforwine.co.uk website.Domaine Ruffinatto is a small estate owned by a Christian Ruffinatto in the Cotes du Luberon appellation,an appellation created in 1988 in the south-east of the Southern Rhone region.It consists of 50% grenache,20% carignan,15%syrah and 15% counoise and is matured in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night asa an accompaniment to my dinner of roast pork.It has a particularly dark red colour almost like blackcurrants.There is plenty of fruit and flavour there although like many southern Rhones it is a little dry,structured and reserved but there is also a hint of spice possibly because of the use of carignan.I enjoyed it and thought it a quality product
