Wine Tasting NotesDeep purple. Complex and subtle, blackcurrant, plum, followed by roasted coffee, cinnamon, cherry, morello cherry and licorice. Peppery flavors with nuances of sage, rosemary and red fruit.
The 2006 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche is a strong effort in this vintage from Michel Chapoutier. The wine is already delicious, showing notes of plum, black currant, and cherry in a straightforward, fruity style with good body and seductive aromatics. It is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah and should drink well for 4-5 years.
A charming petit Bordeaux with lovely currant and cherry fruit, some delicate spice, and beautiful, silky texture, this pure, mid-weight wine is already delicious and best drunk over the next 1-3 years.
Chapoutier appears to be building more stuffing into his bottom line Côtes du Rhône as evidenced by the 2000 Belleruche. A blend of equal parts Syrah and Grenache, it exhibits a deep ruby color as well as a sweet nose of black fruits, licorice, herbes de Provence, and earth. Tangy acidity provides definition and crispness to this medium-bodied, fruit-driven effort. It should drink well for two years.
Juicy and pure, with the vintage's textbook flavor profile of raspberry and licorice, backed by a graphite hint on the finish. Drink now through 2007.
Soft and plummy, a wine of medium body that tastes a bit mature, with forest underbrush, fresh mushrooms and wet earth. Turns quite chewy and tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2005.
A blend of Syrah and Grenache, if offers aromas and flavors of berries and cherries, tangy underlying acidity, fine elegance and finesse, and a floral, fruity quality. Pure and refreshing, it is best drunk over the next 2-3 years.
