M. Chapoutier Chateauneuf-du-Pape la Bernardine 2012
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Color: Garnet Nose: Berries, lemon Palate: Mild cherries, plums, strawberries, spicy Mouthfeel: Tannic, Dry Purchased: Giant, December 2013
External Reviews for M. Chapoutier Chateauneuf-du-Pape la Bernardine
Inky ruby. Sexy intensely perfumed aromas of blackberry cherry-cola and violet with allspice cola and olive nuances building with air. Sweet and penetrating in the mouth showing a seamless texture and vibrant dark berry compote and violet pastille flavors. Finishes with excellent energy and focus leaving cola and smoky mineral notes behind. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
This wine is garnet red in color. On the nose, aromas of red fruits, mainly morello cherries, and spices, like licorice and grey pepper. This wine has a great structure with firm and silky tannins.
Showing more richness and depth, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Rouge possesses classic Southern Rhone notes of black cherries, spice and background earthiness to go with a medium-bodied, fruit-loaded profile on the palate. It too should be consumed over the coming couple of years and offers high quality for not much buck. Drink now–2015.
Gritty and dry on the end. Transparent and lively. Sinewy. At the junction of Ctte Brune and Ctte Blonde. No Viognier. Almost brutally dry on the finish. Not as magic as their Ermitages. 17/20 Jancis Robinson.
The 2012 Cote Rotie La Mordoree excels in the vintage with its perfumed aromatics and medium to full-bodied richness on the palate. Carrying plenty of mineral-laced black cherry and raspberry nuances intermixed with underbrush leather and bacon fat it possesses an understated elegance with superb purity of fruit fine tannin and a great finish. It should be at its best in a handful of years and evolve gracefully for 12-15 years or more. 93-95+ - Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
