Hard to beat for $13. Pnp. Well balanced. Red fruit aromas really pop and are noticed right away. BlackBerry, plum, and tobacco along with some tannins still. Could use some more aging or a good decant. — 17 days ago

Les Peyrouses Côtes du Rhône AOC Red Rhone Blend 2015

Exuberant nose of violets, dark berries and white pepper. Touches of cedar, funk and bacon present initially but seem to blow off. First taste was best, as it quickly became a bit thick and grippy, though I’d still call the tannins fine grained. This is maybe middle of the road - neither modern nor impenetrably rustic. For a big Syrah this is glugable now but I expect it to start hitting its stride in 10-15y, as there’s plenty of stuffing. — 22 days ago

Domaine Paul Autard

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2015

Spontaneous pull for dinner, needing something to hold up to rigatoni with sweet and spicy Italian sausage in homemade red sauce and a hit of medium dry Madeira (Broadbent), this is working just fine. 👍

Nose of a tannic raspberry, fresh cherry, some alcohol lingers and should eventually blow off.

Palate has generous raspberry, spiced/ripe cherry, green pepper, cocoa powder, cedar box and small amount of forest floor.

Great QPR with the price of admission at only $13.50. Good wine isn't always expensive.

Well, no, except for the Alcohol Board in Boston and generally federal law. But aside from that, I should look into it. :)

La Font du Vent Les Promesses Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend

This one was pretty decent. I found it to be on the sweeter side (but not cloyingly so). Lots of floral and berry notes. I probably should have started with this one, but then I might not have liked that Greek one as much. — a day ago

Lovely white flower and tropical fruit aromas. Delicate and supple on the palate with a subtle mineral nuance. No apparent oak. Well done! — 7 days ago

L'Élémentaire Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2015

Inspiring story.... best part about a wine (other than sharing it with friends and family), is learning the origin, history of the winery, process, and passion of the cellar master/wine maker.

This was a wonderful and delicious blend of grenache and syrah from Rhone. Full bodied with raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, spice, vanilla, and limestone/gravel/stone. A fruit forward and approachable wine filled with tons of stewed/baked red fruit with ever so slight tannins from the French oak.

Famille Perrin

Réserve Côtes du Rhône White Blend 2017

Cool straw and water color. Smells like pears and fresh rainwater. Hint of citrusy zing as well. Flavors are lovely. Floral with more pear. Hint of honey. Little citron and lanolin. A lovely white with pizazz. For $8 it’s a steal. — a day ago
