This Côtes du Rhône blend is bright, light, youthful, medium-bodied, and red-fruit forward, with good acidity and medium tannins, pairing nicely with an alfredo pasta (vegan style) and spinach salad.
It’s an easygoing and food-friendly sipper.

Awesome full and easy at the same time. Fruity and not too strong on tannins. — a year ago
Dark red purple. Inviting nose of black cranberry and patent leather. Medium full palate echoes the nose adding a hintnn by of black olive and licorice on the finish. Medium plus tannins. Medium plus acidity. Classic Rhône with a slightly New World sheen. Great with beef or rustic pork dishes. — 2 months ago
Another one from a perfect cellar I just purchased. Cork in perfect shape. Wine is a beautiful example of aged gigondas. Almost Bordeaux like to start then some soil’y Loire quality and now it’s almost barolo like with deep ripe red fruits, iodine and smoked earth. Really lovely. Hit me up for a preview on this cellar. Prices are stupid good as the wines are premium examples of stuff you just can’t find — 6 months ago
Bright but deep gold. Honey is the first thing that hits from the big bosomy nose, followed by a hint of white flowers. Medium full palate echoes the nose with white pepper and citrus pith taking the lead over layers of minor flavors. Medium acidity and a lengthy, brooding finish (with that honey returning right at the end). Wow. What a gorgeous white Rhône. Near CdP level complexity at an upper CdR price. An excellent wine for roasted pork or poultry, root vegetable casseroles, pot pie, or any other rich “white wine” dish. You could even have this with grilled fare. Drink now through 2025. — 3 months ago
