1991 Chateau Val Joanis Cotes du Luberon rouge


This junior version of a Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a spectacular value. It offers lush black raspberry fruit with hints of earth and herbes de Provence. There's enough tannin for structure but not enough to keep you from thoroughly enjoying it now. It's hard to make a case for buying 1991 Bordeaux when $8 will bring you this much complexity and depth in a wine from the south of France. It's worth buying by the case.
