Today's Wine Tasting Note

© Copyright 1998 by Robin Garr. All rights reserved.

Galet des Papes Domaine du Galet des Papes 1995 "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape ($19.99)
Inky dark garnet. Ripe red fruit and hints of leather and anise on the nose; big and chewy flavor, fruit and tart, lemony acidity. Not as tannic as you might expect of a '95, with only a light astringent fuzz in the finish. Extremely fragrant black pepper becomes more evident with time in the glass. Good, complex wine, drinking well now. U.S. importer: New Castle Imports Inc., Myrtle Beach, S.C. (Aug. 14, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Good match with filet mignons pan-braised in red wine, Northern Italian style.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
