    (Chante le Merle BOSQUET VV) Friday Special #2

    Dear Friends,

    On one hand I’m complaining about scores and then on the other I’m quoting them in an offer - such is the nature of the human dilemma but this traditional wine is not only in the bottle but it sings effortlessly with wings of old-vine sap and Grenache lace that are more than compelling. Who says you need a preponderance of new oak to make a great Chateauneuf? Not me.

    We’ve been on a Rhone tear over the last week, the fruits of my last trip, and this is one of the cherries on the sundae. This wine keeps getting better and better and it should really blossom with another 4-6 years of cellaring. For a Vielles Vignes cuvee, it is extremely well priced:

    This parcel has impeccable provenance directly from the source

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for terrific value in contrast to other high-end CdP cuvees:

    2004 Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape Chante Le Merle V.V.

    Thank you,
