V.i.t 'Visitare' Côtes du Roussillon Ac M. Chapoutier Tain Chapoutier Michel 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Percentage Grape: 60% Monastrell, 30% Tempranillo and 10% Shiraz<br/><br/>Soil: Soils are very stony and dun-limy, and their structure makes vines survive in long periods of droughts.

After light pressing, the juice macerates for fourteen days to a fermentation temperature of 26/ 28°C with subsequent pressing by pneumatic machine. Ageing: 4 month in French and American oak.<br/><br/>Age of Barrel: new<br/><br/>Type of Wood: french and american<br/><br/>Alcohol Percentage: 13.5 %<br/><br/>Aging Time: 4 months<br/><br/>Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l

For $7.99 per bottle, this is one of those finds one looks to fill-up their wine refrig with. Going into the Fall season this is just perfect for those comfort food dishes served this time of year. Enjoy!!! Cheers!

Bright black cherry hue, aromas of blueberries, violets and spices; flavor notes of red berries, cherry cola and underbrush with a hint of cedar, on the edge between rustic and refined.

Excellent rose. Aromas of raspberry and rose petals echoed on the palate with a bit of sweet strawberry. Dry finish. Interesting silky texture.

This Corbières has a deep ruby colour. On the nose, the first impression is of sweet stone fruit and plums with a big herbal quality and a touch of ground black pepper. The ripe fruit element continues on the palate but moves and changes to a more savoury style with the spice, herbs and pepper creeping in and then the tannins which although present are well integrated. You can sense the mediterranean heat. It's ready to drink now but will certainly keep for a few years yet. We drank it with a plain char-grilled steak and the match was fabulous. The wine has around 45% Grenache and Syrah with some old vine Carignan making up the blend. 10 - 12 months ageing in French barriques after a period of cuve ageing gives it complexity but by no means does the oak component dominate the palate.

Very full-bodied for a Macon, more like a white burgundy proper than a typical flinty Macon. This wine saw a bit of oak, giving it a bit of creaminess and heft. It's not buttery, but there's some weight there. Apples, lemon and fresh cut grass dominate. Very good acidity. Was great with shrimp risotto.

Caluri Russu ist ein unkomplizierter Rotwein mit einer feinfruchtigen Nase, der durch seine samtig schöne Gerbstoffsruktur besticht.

Rubinrot, granatfarbene Reflexe. Warmes, Rebsorten-typisches Bouquet nach schwarzem Pfeffer, Gewürznelke und Kirschen, auch etwas Lakritze. Kräftiger Gaumen mit wiederum viel Würze, roter Beerenfrucht und Oliven, kompakt strukturiert und von feiner Tanninstruktur, anhaltendes Finale.

Dichtes Purpur-Granat. Geröstete Mandeln und Gianduja in der offenen Nase. Süsslicher Auftakt im fruchtigen Gaumen, reife Tannine und honigartiges Extrakt, Backpflaumen und Weinbeeren. Gute Balance bis ins kirschige Finale.

A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2006 Domaine d Eugenie Clos Vougeot 750ml

For fans of Vosne-Romanée, this will please in many ways. It shows the great pure red fruits, sous bois aka a leafy woods smell, and a depth of tannins.

Rich and smooth, this Rioja Crianza comes from a very traditional producer in Spain. CVNE was established in the late 1800s as a company that believed in maintaining tradition while using innovative techniques. Bright cherry flavors, balanced acidity, and notes of vanilla on the finish characterize this true Rioja.

Eine intensive Nase mit würzigen Aromen wie Nelke, Spuren von frischen Pflanzen, Eukalyptus und Johannisbeeren. Ein lang anhaltender und andauernder Geschmack.
