Previous day's wine note
|Domaine la Réméjeanne 1999 "Les Arbousiers" Côtes du Rhône ($9.99) GOOD BUY!|
Inky ruby in color, showing fresh aromas of ripe red fruit and spicy oak with hints of berries and fragrant pepper. Full on the palate, juicy cherry-berry fruit and lemon-squirt acidity over soft tannins. In the broad spectrum of Cotes-du-Rhone styles, this one's at the robust end of the scale, almost a baby Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Good value! U.S. importer: Vintner Select, Cincinnati. (Jan. 7, 2001)
FOOD MATCH: The wine's ripe, earthy and peppery flavors make it a particularly good match with a hot bowl of borshcht, Russian beet and beef soup.
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.
