One of our favorite Chateauneufs on sale...
Delighted to see that one of our favorite CdPs on sale at the LCBO (Vintages #70862 $34.75).
One of the purest expressions of Chateauneuf you can get today. The 2009 carries the torch of successively exceptional vintages dating all the way back to 2001. Deft winemaking is the hallmark of this producer. Despite warm and even uber-hot vintages, La Roquete focuses on balance rather than concentration. The result? Beautiful raspberry, cherry, cassis, graphite, baking spice, sweet earth, herbs and star anise. Exceptional finish. Drink now through 2020. 93 points. -Andy
