Bousquet des Papes ‘Chante le Merle’ Chateauneuf du Pape 2004

Grenache from France - Rhone
Review Date : 03-Sep-2011
This has a deepish, dark mahogany colour with a pale garnet edge. Elegant on nose, this shows light, cool fruit aromas of soft red berry fruits with a little earth and cedar, the bouquet quite delicate and subtle. A medium-weighted wine, this shows attractive cedar, liquorice and prune-like flavours forming a tight core on the palate, with firm, slightly stalky tannins. The wine has maturity flavours of brown spices and figs, and is dry in presentation. Drink over the next 4-6 years.  Aug 2011
