Mas de Gourgonnier Rouge Les Baux de Provence 2008
A remarkable wine that surpasses in length and spice the estate's extraordinary 2007—we think it's even better suited for the table as its balance is superior. A blend of 37% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carignan from mostly older vines, grown on the region's granite-rich soils; 100% organically raised and vinified completely in tank. A deep purple in the glass; the nose is a pepper festival, with black and pink peppercorns mixing with wildflowers and dark roses. Garrigue—the classic Provencal herbs of rosemary, wild thyme, and lavender—are abundant in both the wine's aromas and on the palate. Purple fruits dominate the mouth, with a plumy richness and a black truffle edge that is earthy and delicious—it reminds us a bit of Bandol. The 2008 Rouge is certainly the longest wine we've tasted from this organic estate— peppers and spices linger for what seems like hours.
