2007 Rasteau, Domaine Gourt de Mautens
Jérôme Bressy's Rasteau seems to be improving with each passing year. Deep, dark fruit in the glass, the nose offers expressive dark damsony fruit, dark cherry too with a discreet spice. Velvety, dense on the palate with sweet ripe fruit allied to notes of liquorice and pepper. A distinctive minerality is revealed to the finish. The texture here is so enticing - for a wine of this depth, it remains remarkably well-poised. The fruit refuses to fade on the finish, leaving an impression of tremendous elegance.
