    ($28) Medium red. Highly complex aromas of red fruits and pungent herbs, warmed by a gentle toasty oak tone. Suave flavors of raspberry and cherry are accented by lavender and bitter chocolate. Finishes on a sweet note, with dusty tannins and a lingering spice character. (Kermit Lynch, Berkeley, CA)

    The 2004 Les Pallieres Gigondas, cropped at 28 hectoliters per hectare, possesses notes of crushed rocks, dried herbs, raspberry and cherry fruit, elegance, medium body, and a nice, slightly austere but impressive finish. It should drink well for at least a decade. At the request of Daniel Brunier, all of the estates where he produces wines have been grouped together. There are some changes, several of which I noted last year. The second wine of Vieux Telegraphe has changed its name from Vieux Mas des Papes to Telegramme, and of course there is a major effort underway by Brunier to dramatically increase the quality of La Roquette with the introduction of a new luxury cuvee of about 4,000 bottles made from 100% Grenache from 70-year-old vines planted in a sector of Chateauneuf du Pape known as Les Pialons.
