Côtes Du Luberon, Southern Rhône

Domaine Guy Mousset

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2016

9.0

Drank 4/20 /19. Excellent pairing with grilled lamb kebabs.

Nose of red cherry, strawberry, cinnamon candy, and a touch of herb de Provence. Juicy red cherry and some herbs on the palate, backed by medium tannins. Medium finish, that is perhaps a touch too short. This really sings with the food pairing, although it is nice on its own.

3/22/8/4/3 + 50

An excellent value at $14

Chateau Cohola

Cotes du Rhone Villages Sablet Rouge 2015

60% grenache and 40% syrah, very low yields (15 - 20 hl/ha). This organic estate goes from strength to strength and this 2016 is a beauty that outshines many a Chateauneuf-du-Pape at twice the price. Black fruit and spices, fresh acidity and noble tannin. Has complexity and very good length too. Terrific value at less than 18 euro. Highly recommended. — 11 days ago

Les Buisserons Red Rhône Blend 2017

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.

Domaine de Beaurenard (Paul Coulon et Fils)

Rasteau Côtes du Rhône Villages Red Rhone Blend 2017

What a stunner. I’ve been so anxious to try the 2017 vintage from the Southern Rhône and if this is an indicator of the general quality then we’re really in for a treat. The Rasteau from Beaurenard is stacked with the freshest brambles, blueberries and lavender. On the palate the dark fruits are perfectly ripe and wonderfully fresh. There’s a delightful weight about it too. I can hardly wait to try the CdPs! — 8 days ago

Les Halos de Jupiter

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend

Not bad at all, had with Black Forest smoked ham for Easter but it’s depth emerged after dinner. At one point could not ignore the grapefruit, but the darkness could not be held back...good value. — 6 days ago
