For Father's Day dinner, I chose two of my favorite wines, a Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape and this Domaine Thalabert, a Crozes that,. in my opinion, deserves to be ranked with the best wines from the Hermitage hill. At 29 years, the 1991 is showing well right now.
Still deep albeit with a lot of bricking. Has the Northern Rhone bouquet that I love: black fruits with a spicy, peppery lift. Very savory: black olives, sea salt, earth but with ripe strawberry fruit creeping in at the finish. It's a wine I could sniff and sip all night, finding something new each time.
