Critic Notes

The 2,000-case cuvee of 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Marquis is dominated by Grenache with dollops of Mourvedre and Syrah included. One-hundred percent of the stems were utilized during the fermentation. This superb offering reveals a deep ruby/garnet color in addition to a sweet bouquet of kirsch liqueur, roasted meats, figs, lavender, and freshly ground Provencal herbs. It is an unctuously rich, full-bodied, dense Chateauneuf du Pape with low acidity and tremendous fruit intensity. It can be drunk now or cellared for 12-14 years. Feb 2004, www.robertparker.com

Maurice bought two barrels in 1943 and ...

Tenerife + its Terroir - in conversation with Jonatan Garçia Lima of Suertes del Marqués
For many of us, Tenerife has more to do with holidays in the sun than fine wine, but there has in fact been a long history of winemaking on the mountain slopes of the northern part of the island, which is much cooler than the tourist hub in the south. The grapes are grown on some of the world's most ...

The King of the Southern Rhone
“For nearly 20 years I have been advocating the best wines of this appellation as something of an insider’s secret – decadent, hedonistic, complex and full wines that are frightfully under-priced and underestimated.” Robert Parker, Wines of the Rhone Valley 1987 While the wines of the Rhone may not be so much of an ‘insiders secret’ anymore, the top wines of ...
