I picked this one up last night and tried it straight off. The wine is a smack on varietal Cotes du Rhone. A good value for the money. The tastes are the typical, slightly sweet, cassis flavors with a medium finish. There was a hint of bitterness on opening. My LCBO product specialist said buy a case. I wouldn’t go that far but it definitely is a good deal, especially if you like Cotes du Rhones. For $15 kinda hard to find a fault. I would say the 89-90 is accurate (for my tastes).

From the LCBO web site:
DOMAINE GALEVAN PAROLES DE FEMME COTES DU RHONE 2007 AC (Jean-Pierre & Coralie Goumarre Vigns.) TASTING NOTE: The 2007 Cotes du Rhone Paroles de Femme (meaning “words of a woman”). This sexy deep ripe full-bodied effort is a blend of 60% Grenache 20% Mourvedre and the rest equal parts Cinsault and Carignan. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by abundant amounts of Provencal typicity as well as roasted herb meat juice kirsch and black raspberry fruit notes. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years. Score – (89-90). (Robert Parker Jr. Oct. 2008) 125930 $15.00
