Rhone Red Stunner – Winery's Best from an Epic Vintage
And did we mention affordable, too?
From the moment we were introduced to the winery, Saint Jean du Barroux has been turning out wines of unbelievable quality for the price. We have just secured a small parcel of their flagship wine, La Pierre Noire, from the 2007 vintage, widely considered to be the best vintage of the 21st century.
Jeb Dunnuck hailed this Rhone red in the Rhone Report, prior to his joining Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The estate's top wine and a blend 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, the 2007 Saint Jean du Barroux Côtes du Ventoux La Pierre Noire is quite possibly the best Côtes du Ventoux I have ever tasted. Exhibiting a spectacular nose of framboise, wild strawberries, licorice, lavender, spring flowers, and pepper (among other things), this hits the palate with a full-bodied, concentrated, yet elegant and gorgeously proportioned mouth feel that has nothing out of place, masses of ripe tannin, and a dry, clean finish. Knockout stuff, it should be given 2-3 years of bottle age, and then consumed over the following decade or more....95+." Rhone Report 9/12.
We know that with temperatures in the mid-80s, a robust and rich red is probably not on most people's minds. But with Zachys offering complimentary storage for up to 3 months, we can hold this for you in our temperature-controlled warehouse until the fall, when this will be the absolute perfect complement to a holiday meal.
Given the combination of quality, value, vintage, and limited availability, we strongly recommend taking advantage of free storage and securing your bottles sooner than later!
All My Best,
