Referred to as the poor mans Bonneau, because the wine maker is a nephew of Henri Bonneau, who learned his trade from the elder Bonneau, the wine is packed with layers of sweet, jammy kirsch, pepper and herbs. Rich, with good intensity, this should age well. 90 Points

2007 Clos des Brusquières  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 89

Like walking next to a barn door that is wide open and sending out its animal, horse and earthy scents, coupled with black raspberry and red plums. Open and ready for business, tasters with an affinity for those aromas will like this wine a lot more than those that don't. 89 Points
