Cuvee Bastien - Single Vineyard
vero reviewed Domaine de Chateaumar Côtes du Rhône Cuvee Bastien - Single Vineyard 2006 on May 21, 2008
A true declassified Chateauneuf du Pape, the wine is a deep, nearly opaque purple, bringing confident aromas of raspberry, strawberry and blackberry to the nose, with eucalyptus, black pepper, licorice and floral notes. Touches of cinnamon and spice follow onto the medium to full-bodied juicy palate. The tannins are firm, ripe, and well integrated. It all makes for delicious fun.
