MATT'S WINE NOT! COMTE DE LAUZE COTES DU RHONE 2007 FRENCH RED WINE

Oh baby, prepare yourself for a treat with this gem. (Can you tell what I think of it already?)

French wine naturally has this air or feeling about it: you just kinda know you're in for a treat (although I have found this to not always be true), but nonetheless, there is still a certain appeal about these wines. This one is no exception. (And for the record, I love the bottle label - very medieval and aristocratic!)

This dark ruby red wine came with a synthetic cork (which seems to be gaining in popularity), and is a definitive full bodied wine, with rich deep flavours on the nose (i.e. it smells full and flavourful!), smelling of berries and fruit.

Smooth with a slight initial kick, this red delivers a long, satisfying, lingering taste, being dry - but not overly dry, and with flavours that simply burst forth, compensating for the dryness.

I was simply delighted with this wine, and could not get enough of it. It is bold, beautiful, flavourful, rich, bursting with flavours - it is utterly delicious, and by far one of my favourite reds of all time.
