2017 Chateau la Canorgue Luberon Rouge [WA91]
Wine Advocate, 91 Points
This is a highly-anticipated release, and one of the most frequently requested wines in our French selection. Somewhat off the beaten path in Bonnieux, straddling the viticultural border between the Rhône and Provence, sits this idyllic 60 acre property in Luberon National Park.
Early pioneers of organic farming, Canorgue has built a cult following in Europe and abroad for both its red and white “Luberon” which in fine vintages give the more celebrated wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas a run for their money. And the 2016 is certainly an exceptional effort.
Full-bodied, juicy and structured, the limestone-rich clay soils lend the reds a lifted freshness and sense of finesse. Always a very aromatically intense wine, aromas of leather, clove, wild garrigue, all spice, espresso and black olive swirl in the glass along with spicy wild berry flavors.
I always find a wonderful tension between primary fruit and “animal” flavors, along with sweet tannins and fresh minerality. Despite the rather Provencale spirit to this blend, I encourage you to compare the quality of Canorgue’s wines to those of their more famous Southern Rhône neighbors that fetch easily three times the price. - Jordan Wardlaw, Import Wine Specialist
