Chateau Prat-Majou 1998 Minervois ($8.99)
Ch. Prat-MajouInky dark ruby in color, black at the center, this rustic wine breathes dark, plummy fruit, earthy and aromatic, with faint spicy notes adding interest. Full plummy-earthy flavors are consistent with the aroma, with a minerally note of gunflint. Very interesting wine, a lot more going on than you'd expect to find in a modest French country wine. U.S. importer: Hand Picked Selections, Warrenton, Va. (March 7, 2001)

FOOD MATCH: Fine with a Provence-accented pasta dish of chopped lamb with celery and orange flavors over conchiglie shells.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the Wine Lovers' Page name and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.

E-mail me your tasting notes, and I'll consider adding them to this page.
