Patrick Lesec Châteauneuf-du-Pape Marquis Tonneaux 2003
"Red Wine Rhone Blends by Patrick Lesec from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, France. The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Pierres Dorees is a knock-out offering. A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre (two-thirds of the latter is aged in small barrels and one-third of the Grenache is aged in foudre, and the rest in tank), it includes... "
External Reviews for Patrick Lesec Châteauneuf-du-Pape Marquis Tonneaux
Aromas of new and old saddle leather, aged beef, and a touch of brett jump from the glass of the meaty, horsy 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Chasse-Temps. A blend of both foudre and tank-aged Grenache (70%) and Mourvedre (the latter component may account for this winersquo;s animalistic style), this rich, full-bodied, kinky Chateauneuf may be controversial, but I enjoyed it. It should drink well for 10ndash;12 years. The sources for this cuvee include the Palestor and Cabrieres vineyards.
The outstanding 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Chasse-Temps is a blend of tank-aged Grenache (70%) and Mourvedre (30%). This wine is less animal than it was last year, revealing plenty of sweet kirsch liqueur, raspberry, licorice, smoke, herb, and roasted meat notes. Dense, full-bodied, moderately tannic, and in need of 2ndash;3 years of bottle age, it is a real vin de garde and should keep 10ndash;15 years.
