Maybe the best Cotes du Rhone. Young but awesome nose. Deep, rich and ripe berry fruit. Grapey. Wow this is great and this is like a barrel sample. Wild berry. Big, deep, dark, muscular and so concentrated. So elegant. Stunning. Wow. Incredible freshness. — 8 days ago

Château Rayas

Chateau de Fonsalette Réservé Côtes du Rhône Syrah

Nice balance. Still with good tannic structure. Full expansive flavor; better on day 2. Nice warm bouquet. Peppery notes, restrained fruit giving way to earthy floor. Delightful and not reflective of a hot difficult year. — 10 days ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend

Нос: Пронзительная сливочно-ванильно-карамельная земляника и брызжущие соком красные ягоды (малина например), сладкий. В развитии табачок, потом мокрый подлесок.
Рот- отличный баланс кислотности и танинов, свежее, вкусно терпкое, легкое, но ни в коем разе не водянистое. Отличная штука. Я влюбилсо.

Les Amidyves Côtes du Ventoux Grenache Blend 2014

@Delectable Wine - This is majority, if not 100%, Syrah. It’s not a Grenache blend.

I was skeptical. I usually don’t like Syrah from the Southern Rhône. It’s usually blocky and uninteresting. But this. Put this blind in a group of Saint Josephs and no one bats an eye. Cracked pepper, dark berry, granite, and pink grapefruit rind. So lively in the mouth. Clingy and stoney. Delicious.

Mon Coeur Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2015

Excellent Rhône Blend. Aromas and flavors of dark red fruits, licorice and black pepper. A hint of pine needles. Great balance, tannin structure and smoothness for such a young wine. Just the right amount of oak. Delicious!! — 5 days ago

Clos des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2005

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

A great nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, vegetables, green herbs, mint, tobacco and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, vanilla, licorice, oak, spices, chocolates, tobacco coke, graphite, herbs, bell pepper, peppercorn, earth and leather.

Long finish with firm tannins and spices.

This CDP is drinking very nicely now, with great complexity and a solid mouthfeel. Grippy and earthy with enough fruits to make it interesting.

Needs an hour to open up properly. I kept smelling on it for a long while.

This was a wonderful vintage, and it is showing. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$140.

Another monthly WTF Group meet up. Northern Rhône vs Southern Rhône, blind as usual.

In a group of 8 guys, what are the chances this wine is brought twice? Weston and I both ended up bringing this wine, albeit in different groups. I decanted this for a little under two hours and that was without a doubt the sweetspot. Most confused this for northern Rhône based on texture, but it still had a significant amount of black pepper in comparison to the Guigal it was poured alongside.

Domaine Pélaquié

Côtes du Rhône Rosé Blend 2016

To me Tavel rose’ are a leg up on other rose’. This is bottled sunshine. Lots of dusty fruit predominantly jolly rancher-ish strawberry/blueberry. Compliments food. Great mouthfeel. — 11 days ago
