L'Élémentaire Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

One of the more satisfying CDR I’ve had in a while. Barnyard and turned earth aromas backed up by exquisite red and black fruit and just enough structure — 3 days ago

La Source Côtes du Ventoux Grenache Blend 2015

Sweet, cherry flavours, floral secondary aromas of violet, also tertiary leather, smokiness. Long lasting smooth finish. Medium to high acidity.

Provencal and mountainous, sunny yet cool, the quality of this superb terroir is thanks to 5 key elements that give their names to the 5 cuvees of Sent Jean du Barroux: La Source (spring), L'Argile (clay), La Pierre Noire (black stone), Le Microclimat (microclimate) and La Montagne (mountain).

Red Grenache - Carignan - Cinsault - Organic wine
Yield 30 hL/ha - hand picked - de-stemmed: 100% - maceration: 7 days - maturation: concrete and enameled tanks - corks: diam 5

La Ferme du Mont

Premiere Cote Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

3.3. Lovely red, medium body with nice slightly light red color, wonderful mix of fruits and tannins. We liked this better than the somewhat more expensive Le Ponnant. On sale for $12.99, regularly $16.99. — 9 days ago

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! — 4 days ago

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. — 6 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. — 14 hours ago

Jean-Luc Jamet

L'Enclave Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2016

Hot damn this delicious. Over delivering on all fronts. Perfect balance of whole cluster, extract and oak integration. From a plot above the Côte Brune on a plateau of schist and clay which creates a nice plumpness on the palate balanced by the acid profile of this wind-exposed site above the Côte Rôtie. Deeply hued, vibrant and seductively ripe blackberry and huckleberry notes, sweet smoked meat, roasted earth, olive tapenade, lavender, leather, tobacco, wood smoke, mocha. The juice and joyous feeling make for an easy drink but theres structural stuffing here to add a serious side. Can’t wait to revisit. — 21 days ago

Domaine Lombard

Le Brézème Grand Chêne Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales Syrah 2015

We want the funk! A fantastic example of how a judicious touch of brett is the best seasoning for Syrah...and how too much of it makes Syrah smell like donkey ass. Really a perfect wine, for what it is. — 2 days ago

Château Rayas

Château Des Tours Réservé Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 1989

Had this on day two and the bottle was a little shaken. A bit passed its prime (but from questionable storage), it was still both enjoyable and very easily identified as a reynaud wine. — a day ago
