The 2009 La Bastide Saint Dominique Châteauneuf Du Pape is medium bodied, FRUITY to integrated wine, with nice aromas of yogurty cherry and red currant. It is slightly sweet, with nice balance of acid and refined tannins (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is medium, bit alcoholic at 15.5% and somewhat tangy. This wine should definitely be aged as it is too young and it will do so nicely for more than a decade - try around 2014. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 87 pts - while looking at the other reviews, I am starting to wonder if I am reviewing the same bottle, but having time to pay attention to the entire bottle (not alone), I must stand by my review. Tasted Aug/11.
La Bastide Saint Dominique M.C. Bonnet, Vign. Grenache 2009, A.C., Châteauneuf-Du-Pape, Rhône, France: Yum! Big, brooding blackberries looking for a fight (if you disagree that this is a terrific wine). Supple and generous with an endless finish. Loaded with pleasure for hedonists. You’ll need a big slab of meat with this wine. Drink: 2012-2020. 231233 15% D 750 mL $42.95 Score: 93/100. May 14, 2011 Favourite Red Wine. Full Review
