Domaine Croze-Granier 2007 Cotes-du-Rhone (France)
This wine just came out at Vintages this weekend - it has probably been kicking around the wine world for longer, but the LCBO finally got it onto its shelves. I picked up a few and decided to give it a go right away. The nose was full of eucalyptus notes with a black fruit backing; on the palate it was the same tune, lots of eucalyptus with dark fruits, namely raspberries and cherries along with black pepper. The best part of this wine, for me, was the delicious mint-chocolate mid-palate leading to the peppery finish.
