Mas du Boislauzon Cotes-du-Rhone Villages 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Plum, wild berries, and roasted meat on the nose

Full bodied and intense on the palate

Long finish of raspberry, cocoa, and spice

The 2007 Rhone wines from France have been showing up on shelves. Prices are up a bit, which is partly attributable to a perpetually weak dollar, but don't let that dissuade you. These are beauties.

The average Cotes-du-Rhone and Cotes-du-Rhone Villages wines I've sampled so far from 2007 have been excellent. These wines go for $10-25 and can be enjoyed right away. I paid $16 for this and it's well priced for the quality even with a poor exchange rate. Pour the wine, close your eyes, and take in the aroma of the Southern Rhone. And raise a glass!
