Montes Carmenere Purple Angel 2010
"The F. Cotat 2010 Sancerre Les Monts Damnes evinces gooseberry preserves, herbal essences, fresh apple, and honeydew melon in a tartly, faintly bitter-edged, but at the same time substantial and texturally polished palate performance. Caraway and celery seed, chalk and salt add interest leading into a long, juicy and invigorating – yet at the same time somehow soothing – finish. At 13.5% alcohol, here is the lightest of the classic Cotat terroir trio in its vintage. I would expect this well-concentrated, even-tempered, bright yet dense Mont Damnes to be worth following for at least 12-15 years...91" WA 07/12
A very good wine from Chile. The nose is so consistent and consetrated. Aromas of peppers, tomato leaves, plums, berries and light herbs. The palate is following the nose with an amazing balance of the veggie and the fruity parts. Round and plenty tannins with a medium + acidity. Long veggie finish a bit harsh. It needs some time but still is a good choise for now. Any dish combining vegatables and braised beef is a must pair!
Great alternative to new Zealand sauvignon blancs
External Reviews for Montes Carmenere Purple Angel
WE 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - Very powerful. To the palate it is refreshingly crisp, sparkling, soft and sumptuous, showing great complexity of tropical fruits with citric accents. Its high acidity and low pH contribute to the impressive overall freshness and high minerality.
Lebendiger und nach dunklen Früchten und Gewürzen riechender Duft. Eleganter Wein mit ausgereifter Tanninne, die dem Wein Struktur und Griff verleiht. Im Gaumen bilden sich Geschmäcker von schwarzen Beeren.
