Wine of the Week for June 11, 2007

Chapoutier Belleruche Cotes du Rhone 2005- $15.25
Style: R2

In our house, this would be a special occasion or company wine. Still, it’s a pretty good price for the quality. Deep ruby in colour, is shows a light nose with nuances of vanilla, chocolate and spice. Nicely juicy, with bumbleberry flavour, solid acidity and firm tannins. Very good body and length. Hard to pin down, but very solid and very food friendly. Try with hearty roasts or lamb. (LCBO 665422)
