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. — 4 years ago

I love this wine and will always sell it. Not many people share my passion for this wine. Still, I’ll always sell it. An unreal nose of raspberry spice cake that is so good. Heavenly. Big time herbs de Provence. Clay. Graphite as well. This is 60% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah and 15% Grenache. Mint. Lurid black and red berry. This is my favorite southern Rhone wine and it is not close. This is my southern Rhone DRC. Impossibly complex and captivating nose. You cannot stop smelling it. Oh my god. Mercury must be in retrograde tonight as all wines showing sick. Holy elegance. Just so elegant. This is 15%! You would not know. Amazing purity. Such clarity. For people interested this is natural wine as Marcel Richaud is as important to natural wine as Lapierre or Chauvet. This is his piece de resistance. Best one I’ve had since 2010. I cannot believe how juicy and elegant this is. It glides. So so so so good. — 3 months ago

Very drinkable but still herbal and complex, with a healthy but not overwhelming amount of fruit. Very nice. — 5 months 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. — 4 years ago
