2005 Patrick Lesec Rubis Chateauneuf Du Pape
"Deep red. Explosive raspberry and candied cherry on the nose, with subtle garrigue and tapenade notes adding complexity. Spicy, youthfully taut red fruit flavors show very good freshness and nerve. Finishes with supple tannins and excellent thrust." 90 points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"This lovely, perfumed Chateauneuf du Pape is loaded with sweet, lush black raspberry and black cherry fruit. Its fine, soft tannins give it a supple texture, elegant balance and a long, sweet finish." -Importer
"This wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, sourced from 30-60 year old vines. This wine is a blend of 7 lots. Aged in 85% stainless steel and 15% older barrels." -Importer
"Patrick [Lesec] makes great efforts to search out the finest terroirs, the best soils with old vineyards - and thus the finest sources of grapes - in each appellation. These are often growers who own parcels of the best sites, but who may not bottle wine under their own label. Historically, these growers have sold their production to negociants who blend and market their own cuvees."
"Once the lots have been selected for the final blend, Patrick specifies how he wants the elevage done. Some lots will be kept in tank to preserve the freshness of their fruit; others will be aged in barrels to add richness, texture and complexity. He continues to visit the cellars and taste the lots to monitor their progress. Patrick's cuvees are usually treated with as little sulphur as possible. The wines are not fined or filtered, and are hand-bottled where possible." -Importer
This also scored 89 points from Robert Parker.
2009 Coudoulet De Beaucastel Cotes du Rhone Red
"In total contrast, the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet red represents the essence of Provence in its notes of ground pepper, new saddle leather, lavender, kirsch, garrigue, and abundant red and black fruits. This complex, evolved, luscious red begs for a bloody grilled steak. With a creamy, medium to full-bodied texture, this gorgeous, complex, evolved wine should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years." 90 Points Robert Parker
"This dark and alluring red delivers nicely layered cherry preserves and blackberry cobbler notes, backed by black licorice snap and smoldering tobacco flavors on the lengthy finish. More polished and forward than usual, but this has the stuffing to cellar mid-term. Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Drink now through 2014." 90 Points Wine Spectator
"30% Grenache, 30% MourvÃ¨dre, 20% Syrah, 20% Cinsault. Lovely pure fruit â smells almost New World (at its best). Ripe but very well structured and still fluid. Dry long finish and very moreish. (JH)" 17 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages
"ChÃ¢teau de Beaucastel is located five kilometres south-east of Orange at the northern limit of the ChÃ¢teauneuf du Pape appellation. The 30 hectares Coudoulet de Beaucastel vineyard lies just to the east of Beaucastel on the other side of the A7 autoroute. For reasons that will become evident, it is often referred to as a baby Beaucastel. When one looks at the geology of the soil at Coudoulet, the similarities with the soil at Beaucastel are legion. It is composed of a layer of marine limestone from the Miocene period, covered by a deposit of alpine diluvium. This blanket of rounded stones (or "galets") contributes much to the wines of Beaucastel: they retain the intense heat of the Mediterranean sun during the day then slowly disperse it to the vines during the night. They provide a head start to the vines in springtime. During the long Mediterranean summer, lack of water can stress the vineyard at times."
"Coudoulet, as Beaucastel, owes its ability to age to the high proportion of Mourvedre - about 30% - that makes up the final cuvÃ©e. This provides a tannic backbone and resistance to oxidation that ensures long life. In addition, Mourvedre introduces aromas of leather, tobacco, and spice to the blend. One should note also that the Beaucastel and Coudoulet vineyards are at the northern limit for growing Mourvedre, and it is well known that the best expressions of any varietal come from the cooler parts of their growing areas."
"Each grape variety is kept separately until after malolactic fermentation, when the final blend is decided. The young wine continues to mature for about six months in large oak barrels or 'founders'." -Winery
