J.L. Chave Selection Mon Coeur Cotes-du-Rhone 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Intensely resinous nose with dried lavender, currants, and mushrooms
Densely structured on the palate
Long finish of dried herbs and red berries
Here's a powerful and dense Cotes-du-Rhone that could masquerade as a Chateauneuf-du-Pape. It's deeply flavored and has long layers on the finish. Also, there's tons of the resinous garrigue aroma that gives a good Cotes-du-Rhone it's character.
Expect to pay around $20- and raise a glass!
