Chateau Maris 1995 "Prestige Comte Cathare" Minervois ($12.99)
Chateau Maris From the Minervois wine region of Languedoc in Southern France, this dark-garnet wine is pleasant and complex, with fragrant black-pepper, leather and spice aromas over ripe black fruit. Full and juicy fruit flavors are consistent with the nose, mouth-filling and long. While it's fully ready to drink, there's no hurry to enjoy this one. U.S. importer: Langdon Shiverick Inc., Cleveland. (Oct. 4, 2000)

FOOD MATCH: A natural with red meat, but its earthy fruit also made a fine cross-cultural match with Szechwan-style noodles in peanut sauce.

NEW!
Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We are now publishing Wine Lovers' Page wine 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.
