Côteaux Du Lyonnais, Rhône

Maison Clusel-Roch

Galet Coteaux du Lyonnais Red Rhone Blend 2015


Little sign of the hallmark carbonic maceration smells of strawberries and cinnamon. In their place are more elegant Burgundian aromatics of cherry licorice, flower gardens mulched with fresh forest compost, and just a wee curl of sandalwood smoke. A sip is structured and dense with sappy wild bramble fruit. If any comparison to Cru Beaujolais is to be made, it has to be to the age-worthy specimens from Morgon and Moulin-à-vent.

Gam’ Nature Côteaux du Lyonnais Gamay

a nature wine rather green. early, light, with a nice acidity that will place it at the beginning of the meal. a gourmet nose with tangy notes of jammy cherries, specific to gamays. A lot of freshness, light, nice, generous. price / quality ratio correct. — 3 years ago

Le Bistrot de la Mère Maréchal Les côteaux du Lyonnais Chardonnay 2015

Crazy good right-time-of-the-year-for-no-wood French Chardonnay, herbal and melon from nose to finish showing plenty of acid/tannic softly clinging depth front to back (even without wood), hints of some cantaloupe towards the end and a tinge of fresh raw celery throughout the drink. This wine was brilliantly paired with a groovy tart greens-based salad, at my buddy, Geoph Adams', waterfront Black Sheep, in Beaufort, NC. Don't miss his magic moment when hanging or passing through NC's middle cape, which is Lookout (Beaufort being lazy, crazy, cool). Another brilliant wine by Eric and Laure's Queen of Wines (boutique importing and distribution bringing the passion of France straight into NC) so cool!!! — 3 hours ago — 5 years ago
