L'Aventure Côte à Côte 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big notes of candied black berry fruits greet the nose with this wine and are quickly joined by floral notes, spice tones and a touch of green anise seed. Moderately rich in the mouth this just scream out I am ripe mourvedre! If you like Mourvedre chances are you will love this wine. The fruits are rich, dark and earthy in the mouth with lovely leathery, cocoa tinged edges. The tannins are nicely integrated and balanced by the excellent acids. The wine finishes with rich wild berry and mulberry tones and just a hint of dried mushroom on the finale. 93pts

Bright cherry fruit on the nose. Flavors have a nice spice to them, following through from the attack to fill the palate. Bright red fruit, pepper and leather.

Blackberry and cherry on the nose. Incredibly smooth and elegant with restrained sweet fruit flavors. Very rich and yet balanced. With cocoa, eucalyptus and cedar notes. Lovely. Finishes on chocolate and licorice.
