Product Description

90 points from the Wine Advocate: "Isabelle Bertrand (sister of La Font de l’Olivier’s Bruno Granier) and husband Claude’s 2007 Cuvee des Cigales represents a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and a bit of Carignan from a portion of the Cotes de Thongue that may well be reclassified as Faugeres. Certainly this bottling exhibits the quality of the better wines from that appellation, thus more than justifying its price. It is also a tribute to its vintage and to its vintners’ increasing expertise, since the 2005 (reviewed in issue 178) was nowhere near this successful. Plum cherry, a beef stew like meatiness and caramelized root vegetables inform the nose and palate of this expansive, rich, yet in no way heavy cuvee. Tart fruit skin and pungent herbal notes help convey a sense of vitality and invigoration to a positively palate-staining finish. Relish this over the next 2-3 years." (Aug 09)
