2014 Domaine Du Banneret Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Offer
An Amazing Price on a Classic, Traditionally Styled Chateauneuf-Du-Pape That Will Delight and Improve for Many, Many Years to Come
At our tasting last Friday, I opened a sample bottle of the new vintage (2014) of Domaine Du Banneret Chateauneuf- Du- Pape. This wine always, always demands and gets response. But…….I was floored by the response from everyone that tasted it! Not surprised but impressed with the passion with which the way spoke. Intense! If you like traditional Chateauneuf, this is it. The Domaine has about 7 acres of vineyards, all very old and a mix of all 13 allowable Chateauneuf red grape varieties. It’s top of the category and in many cases, half the price of others that can compete! This beauty is only available in Portland and maybe two other markets. A competent reviewer recently said of the Banneret;
“A classic effort that oozes notions of saddle leather, garrigue, dry pepper and spice. Reminiscent of a Provencal street market.” Very well said!
You can’t and shouldn’t drink Pinot all of the time. Variety IS the spice of life. There are so many great wines and I plan to offer them to you when I find one that has it all. A wine made in the vineyard with minimal handling in the cellar and bottled as naturally as possible. Be sure of one thing. If I think enough to offer it to you you can depend on that endorsement. Simply put, I will only offer you wines that are exciting to drink!
This is one great wine,
