Clos Du Calvaire Chateauneuf du Pape 2009 (Mayard)

14.5% Imported by Free Run Seattle,WA

Very nice wine and drinking well right now. Feminine and savory. Somewhat delicate. A little spritzy when opened but pouring it into a decanter solved that. Classic wine and true to the appellation. The 2nd time I've had this with consistent results although last time was slightly better. Great with grilled lamp from a butcher, instead of the store. This is one of the only very nice Rhones I've ever gotten from Garagiste although there is a number I haven't tried yet. Proud to have been kicked off their list 6 years back or so.

Thanks
