Côtes Du Rhône

Xavier Vignon

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2011

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish/ purplish rim.

On the nose, blueberries, light cherries, light vanilla, wet leaves, earth, tobacco leaf, leather, licorice, spices, black pepper, bitter herbs and vegetables.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Very dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, spices, vegetables, pencil lead, tobacco leaf, dark coffee, peppercorn, earth and black tea.

Long finish with grippy tannins (after 2 hours of airtime) and tangy cranberries.

This 8 year old Côte du Rhône is still drinking nicely although on the decline now. Not fully balanced with hugh tannins. I had it 3 years ago and it was not ready at all. Much better now.

Earthy, big and would be a nice addition to a fatty BBQ steak. I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Cuvée les Figues Côtes du Rhône Syrah Blend

Young and fresh.

Vanilla cake topped with a berry compote, that’s what this nose has to tell.

Soft candied fruitcake fruits, yet only a hint. This quickly turns into Pom and cherry, no sugar added type of juice, with just enough barrel aging to temper these fresh fruits. Some of that lovely popsicle stick tannic /acidity blend to bring up the back end. A lovely wine, if you give it some air time. A couple of hours in, and it is drinking perfect.

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Chave Sélection Côtes du Rhône Mon Coeur Red Rhone Blend 2016

[Tasted on February 3, 2019 at Home]

50% Grenache and 50% Syrah. Negociant wine from Jean-Louis Chave with fruit sourced from the Southern Rhône. Dark ruby color with some olive notes on the nose. Fruit dominates the wine. Juicy black cherry with tobacco, cedar and earth. Spicy finish. Well balanced and delicious wine.

9.0

The nose of Reynaud wines. Great intensity and depth. Blood orange and spice. Palate was full with notes of cherry and beef blood. Acid was a little low. Needs a few more years to shed some baby fat. — 14 days ago

Domaine de la Ferme Saint Martin

Les Terres Jaunes Beaumes-de-Venise Grenache Syrah 2014

Second exemplary bottle I’ve had of this. Nose is rustic/complex. A little barnyard, a little Brett, crushed stones, iodine, and dark berry pomace. Dry and earthy in the mouth, with nice concentration, length, and balance, and a touch of rusticly not-so-soft tannin still. I don’t see this improving, but big fun now. — 16 days ago
