Oratoire St Martin Cotes du Rhone Villages Haut Coustias 2001

Member Review by Sweetstuff:

(Image courtesy CellarTracker.com)TN: 2001 Domaine de l'Oratoire St Martin Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne (Côtes-du-Rhône Villages) Haut-Coustias, Fréderic & Francois Almy, 13.5 pabv; $20/750 ml, Arrow Wines, Oakwood, OH; Vintner's Select, Mason OH.Strong purple with decided bricking at edge as of this tasting; obvious tearing. Strong cherries and tar scent with a noticeable sweetness, vanillin, and warmth to the fruit, perhaps from some fairly new oak. Full CdR attack and complexity, now running to some secondary integration; tannins resolving. Finishes with a mouthful of some nice Indonesian-coffee. Excellent drinking at this point, but still will hold. My style of CdR; wish it was brought into this market in every good vintage.91/100.
