Great chateauneuf from total wine. Will buy a bunch more! — 4 months ago
Wait, can I rate the same wine twice? — 6 years ago
This pops with vibrant strawberry and kirsch, but continues reverberating with incense, citrus peel, damp chalk, and licorice. I would happily spend $15 again, but this gives me the confidence to trade up to Halos Gigondas or Chateauneuf du Pape the next time around.
Finally trying this label... Considering the esteem to which I hold Philippe Cambie and my love for Grenache, it's been a long time coming. Cambie, along with a Michel Gassier, produce Grenache-focused bottlings from nearly all the Southern Rhone AOCs under the Halos de Jupiter label. To Cambie, Grenache is the king of all grapes, thus the comparison to Jupiter (Zeus in Greek), forming the basis of the label. The halo symbolizes the appellations that best express the personality of Grenache. http://www.philippecambie.com/en/les-halos-de-jupiter/ — 4 years ago
A weak flowery bouquet subtracts from a full mouthfeel of black cherries, tea, herbs, and a touch of chocolate. Medium body firm tannin. A fine pairing to pork schnitzel with heavy mushroom gravy, yet can stand in its own and be enjoyed. — 4 years ago
Philippe Cambie expression. The power of Rhône Valley in a bottle. It´s structured, spicy and tannic. An amazing pairing for red meat lover. — 6 years ago
