    Tasting like a profound Chateauneuf du Pape, the 2005 Cotes du Rhone La Bosse (from ancient Grenache vines planted directly in front of the winery) was cropped at 10 hectoliters per hectare. The good news is its an outrageous, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal wine that ultimately achieved 16% natural alcohol. The bad news is there are only 4,000 bottles. It is a formidably endowed, truly legendary Cotes du Rhone made in the style of some of the old Fonsalettes (i.e., 1978, 1985, 1989, 1990). This monster wine should age effortlessly for 20-25 years. If you can find any, its a must purchase.
