This is as piny and resinous as this bottling has ever been, imparting a slightly medicinal cast to the black cherry and plum aromas. The flavors pick up more traditional hints of ash, espresso and black olive. This medium-bodied wine’s slightly dusty tannins turn silky on the finish.

These Chapoutier wines are sometimes reviewed by my colleagues David Schildknect in his Languedoc-Roussillon report and Lisa Perrotti-Brown in her reviews of Australian wines, so I will just list the wines, my score, and the region from which they emerge. They are of very high quality and deserve readers’ attention. Hopefully my prose has convinced more than a handful of readers to try these remarkable wines from one of the most fascinating and compelling personalities in the entire wine world, and one dedicated to the highest quality.

This fresh and vibrant red is focused and distinctive, offering black olive and mineral overtones around a vivid core of plum and blackberry fruit. Persists easily against polished tannins. Drink now through 2018.

This majestic Shiraz comes from the spectacular Malakoff estate, low-yielding (less than 1t/acre), high-concentration vineyard site in Central Victoria. Gone is the over-ripe, alcoholic in-your-face style of so many Australian shiraz wines.

Dripping with minerality, this has oodles of crushed stone and slate character riding over the bass notes of ripe plum and spice, finishing with snap and pizzazz.

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier combines the vision of Anthony J. Terlato, the founder of luxury importer and marketer Terlato Wines International, and Michel Chapoutier, the esteemed Rhône grower and vintner whose compelling wines have been exalted by critics around the world. The origin of the Terlato & Chapoutier partnership in Australia dates back to 1998, when Chapoutier enthusiastically told Terlato about a top vineyard site in Australia. Located on an eastern-facing slope on the southern edge of the Pyrenees Hills in western Central Victoria, the region’s soil could produce "great wines", according to Chapoutier. Only 400 cases of this 2006 were produced and it received 90 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine who noted "Seems more elegant than the brawny 2005". The Wine Spectator scored it 91 points saying "Crisp and vibrant. A juicy mouthful of blueberry and plum flavors, with a black pepper note and a pleasing minerality to the finish that give this distinction. Best from 2009 through 2016." On Sale!

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOR Deep ruby AROMA Highly aromatic with black fruit aromas (black cherry and black currant) and undertones of dark chocolate, white pepper and eucalyptus. TASTE Explosive black berry and black plum flavors with perfectly matched, elegant tannins that give the wine a long, lasting aftertaste. Full bodied and rich. A treat to drink now and will age well for 7-10 years.
