Roses Camile - Another Winner (K)

by Daniel Rogov » Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:43 pm

Today tasted the 2006 Rose Camille kosher edition. The good news is that like the 2005 wine, this is a truly fine fine. The bad news is that there may not be further kosher editions of the wine, much depending on whether the winery succeeds in finding a sales point in the United States.

Best
Rogov

Domaine Roses Camille, Pomerol, 2006: Based primarily on Merlot, full-bodied, with soft, gently caressing tannins and a hint of spicy oak. On the nose and palate blackcurrants, raspberries and tobacco, those supported nicely by notes of mocha. Generous and long, with an enchanting note of black licorice on the finish. Appraochable now but this one will show its best and at its most elegant from 2014-2028. Score 93.

Posting 2005 TN for side by side comparison:

Domaine Roses Camille, Pomerol, 2005: 98% Merlot blended with 2% Cabernet Franc to yield what is perhaps the best ever kosher cuvee out of Bordeaux. Full-bodied, with silky tannins that caress oh-so-gently and a bare and tantalizing hint of spicy cedar wood. On first attack raspberries, black and red currants and a generous note of spices, those parting to make room for notes of black olives and espresso coffee. Long, generous and mouth-filling. Approachable and enjoyable now but best only from 2015 and then cellaring comfortably until 2030, perhaps longer. Score 95. K

Also, if I understand correctly, the 2005 & 2006 releases are entirely kosher so these wines aren't side kosher run.

That's correct
