Gerard Bertrand – 2007 Tautavel Reserve Côtes du Roussillon-Villages Grand Terroir

Tautavel

What could be better on a blustery winter evening than a deep, rich Rhone.  The dark, ruby hue drew me into this lovely wine, and the aromas of black fruit, leather and just the slightest hint of olive were enticing.  The flavors of dark currant and black plum were intermingled with coffee, spices and even a little chocolate.  This was a nicely balanced wine, with a bold backbone that was so very satisfying.  This wine paired so very well with spicy red beans and rice, and a crusty sourdough boule.  Hearty, rustic perfection.
