    (LE POUTET Charvin CdR) Charvin #2

    Dear Friends,

    I've been compiling my notes from the Great Producers Tasting but it's slow going to get the pertinent details down on each wine - it's become almost a mini-newsletter (reminds me of the old Recent Impressions newsletter from 5-6 years ago that I used to pen) - hopefully I will finish it this weekend. So far, lots of interesting stories and information so it should be an interesting read (not to mention dozens of tasting notes). It will also include my notes on the Mugnier Musigny vertical from a few weeks ago plus various Cote Roties (La Mouline, Belle Helene, etc).

    Now to the Rhone...

    I've been following this wine with curiosity over the past year and its finally begun to realize the potential that lurked behind closed doors. What was once a one of the more expensive Cotes du Rhone disappointments of the vintage has turned a corner with weight and richness notably absent the last time I tried it (Thanksgiving 2008). I can now recommend the wine as a full-toned example of the Southern Rhone and a verifiable value from one of Chateauneuf-du-Pape's most respected producers. Normally priced closer to $20 or more, this wine won't change your world but it will certainly satisfy your desire for old-world Grenache on a Monday night come this October or November...

    ONE SHIPMENT ONLY at this price with impeccable provenance:

    2006 Charvin Cotes du Rhone "Le Poutet"

    Thank you,

    Jon Rimmerman
