Domaine Sainte Anne Cotes du Rhone Villages Saint Gervais, 2005

This is Domaine Sainte-Anne's Mourvedre-rich cuvee, my favorite of the excellent array of Cotes du Rhone Villages wines produced at the estate. I was disappointed with the 2004 Saint Gervais I opened a couple of weeks ago, but this 2005 is right on target. 

Deep ruby, bright and saturated almost to the rim. A strong undertone of violets along with Mourvedre red and black fruits. Medium bodied with a velvety texture. Elegant fruit and Mourvedre spice from front to back. Sainte-Anne's wines always have substantial acidity and that contributes to their ability to age well. Long finish. What a difference a year makes.
