Here’s a spicy Châteauneuf that esteemed U.S. critic Robert Parker Jr. described with such words as “truffles” and “forest floor.” He’s right on the money, of course, especially with the latter term. The fine-grained tannins render it a bit austere for current consumption. If you can, wait at least two years and up to 10. It would suit braised red meats. $54.99 in B.C.
