Les Halos de Jupiter Côtes du Rhône 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

Wonderful, medium dark robe with a delectable kirsch-like cherry pie nose; inhale deeply and enjoy. Though lighter than CdP, this wine provides good balance and Grenache flair with some chocolate notes on the palate. As good as most Village wines (reputedly sourced from Vinsobres or Rasteau), but drink now through 2014. 90 points. Superb value!

Sleek but concentrated, with delicious dark cherry confiture, linzer torte and blackberry notes backed by a graphite- and black tea-filled finish. Sneakily long. Drink now through 2012.

An outrageous wine sourced from Visan, Cairanne and Rasteau is the 2009 Cotes du Rhone. Dominated by Grenache, it comes across like a mini-Chateauneuf du Pape. Its dark ruby/purple color is followed by boisterous kirsch, sandy, loamy soil, tobacco leaf, pepper and spice notes. Generously endowed, round, silky textured and explosively fruity, it is an enormously satisfying wine to drink over the next 3andndash;4 years.
