Cuvée l'Ebrescade Côtes du Rhône Villages Red Rhône Blend 2015

The one and only. One of the most delicious and singular wines on the planet. This would be on my list of top 10 overlooked wines on the planet. The nose is banging. Big cassis, lavender, herbs, kirsch and flowers. So refined. Some black and blue berries. Just so vivid and detailed. No Cairanne can touch this wine. Perfect balance. Stunning texture, exquisite fruit and gorgeous purity. Ripe but not too ripe and so much finesse. A big wine that’s not big. Elegant and refined tannins. Truly outrageous. I adore this wine. Young but so so good. Can age 25 years. Why wait? Concentrated and just teeming with energy. Treacly texture and such sapidity. Luscious. — a month ago

À La Source Vallée du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2019

Vin de Rouge simple table wine recommended by my favorite wine shop in Iowa City!

Open to thoughts on this wine! The bottle says 2019 BUT the cork says 2011 and has a pretty moderate amount of sediment!

Interesting; this taste like a combination of cherry black licorice liqueur, potpourri, cherry pie, black tea leaves, graphitet wet soil, boysenberry, eucalyptus, almost sweet, no tannins!

I am leaning towards the 2011! Thoughts? 🤷‍♀️🤔
I tried to put the vintage as 2112..Delectable would not go for it! Yep..my generation check!

Revisiting this wine this evening! An absolutely fun adventure which makes wine so interesting to explore! I appreciate everyone's comments and I think @Eric L. is correct in the producer using low SO2. What a difference biodynamic applications produce! This is an entry (very) wine yet so complex at the same time! Whole Cluster on steroids! Think pancake syrup..but this is black strap molasses. Interesting wine for sure!
Conclusion. Vintage 2019 despite the cork. 🤗👍

Wow. Has age helped this blossom. What a nose. Deep soil signature, black fruits, (its a Mourvèdre heavy blend), intense minerals, heady aromas. Maybe pencil lead? Or something intensely blackly mineral. Palate is generous as 11 can be with big tannins, intense deep fruit, and a slab of minerality. Nice freshness. Terrific balance and juiciness for such a big wine. Years to go but awesome now. — 5 years ago

I’m outside and it’s spring and my garden is in full bloom and this bouquet is playing off the scents dancing around me. You know this feeling.

Iodine, BlackBerry, raspberry, green strawberry, lavender. Symphonic.

Very smooth and quite dense with many of the flavours of the blend evident. To pair with something robust. — 5 years ago
