    l`Interdit Vin de France Jules Desjourneys 2008 (750ML)

    In Stock — Zachys NY
    "93 Points, David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""The wine that will be known as 2008 Desjourneys is none other than Duperray's 2008 Fleurie - combining Chapelle des Bois and Les Moriers - that was refused appellation and so is officially, merely, "vin de France." Believe me, this is "vin de France" in the same sense that Debussy signed many of his late masterpieces "musicien francais." The high-toned floral, herbal, and fruit distillate esters that memorably marked the Chapelle des Bois from cask as well as the black tea-tinged and more bittersweetly herbal and concentrated dark berries of the original Les Moriers, have been preserved in this marriage - in fact, after recovering from my chagrin at this wine's having been denied its rightful appellation, I am now entirely reconciled to the two sites having been blended, inasmuch as the whole seems, remarkably, even greater than the sum of its already profoundly delicious parts! This finishes with mouthwatering salinity and a tenacious, almost Gewurztraminer-like meld of brown spices concentrated floral and herbal essences. I would anticipate it being worth following for half a dozen years, but on no account should it be missed earlier-on."" 8/11 #196"
