Chateau Beauchene Grand Reserve 2007 wine review by (PB)
This Cotes Du Rhone red is a black cherry hue with aromas of cracked black pepper and sweet red fruit under a big layer of cooking spices.
Palate--Closed, stingy on opening and a little chewy. Breathe it!
Cherry predominates with dried cherry behind the brighter fruit. Will only get better with another 2 years. For the price, ($10-12) this is a solid Rhone table wine which is great with food from pasta with a red sauce to something on the grill. So raise a glass and thanks T.S.!
