Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Ancient Ones

Today’s Feraud Brunel 2010 Cotes du Rhone Villages Cairanne is a very balanced and well structured wine.

A GMS (Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah) that is made from vines that range in age from 60 to 104 years old, this wine is plump and ripe, giving it a flavor and feel profile that make the wine more approachable and accessible to the American wine drinker.

We’ll enjoy ours now, while holding a few bottles back for the next few years. If you are patient, you’ll likely be rewarded with softer fruit.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep and dark, with concentrated crimson hues from the heart of the wine out to its edges.

Smell:

Lush and concentrated aromas leap from the glass. Ripe, plump aromas of boysenberry, blueberry, raspberry, black currant, dusty violet and black pepper.

Taste:

Old world meets new, with concentrated flavors of dark mixed berry compote, black cherry, violets, dried cranberry and hints of black tea and leather.

Finish:

Plush and very well-structured, with integrated tannins that carry flavors for a long time. As the fruit flavors fade, hints of dried cranberry and black pepper persist.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with anything from a simple skirt steak to a more elegant rare filet mignon. For a vegetarian treat, enjoy with zucchini fritters.
