Previous day's wine note
|Les Hauts de Montmirail 1998 Gigondas ($23.99)|
Very dark garnet, with forward aromas of black pepper, leather and black plummy fruit. Full-bodied and tart, juicy fruit flavors offer overtones of fragrant pepper and rough-edged tannins. A real mouth-full, accessible now - especially with rare beef - but will be better with a little cellar time. U.S. importer: New Castle Imports Inc., Myrtle Beach, S.C. (Oct. 26, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: A thick, grilled T-bone tames the tannins and sings with the peppery fruit.
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.
