Les Halos de Jupiter

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend

So this is a nice movie night drink. Opens up with red licorice on the nose. Hints of raspberry as well. Some dark fruits mix with leather or maybe tobacco and a touch of currant. Nice finish, did not notice any heat from the high alcohol. Acid was in check. Overall. For the price this is a great everyday wine. You can pay more with different results but I think you may like this wine if you try it. — 5 days ago

Domaine la Soumade

Cuvée Prestige Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Red Rhône Blend 2016

9.1

Spicey wine a la Châteauneuf du Pape style. Syrah, Mouverdre & Grenache blend. Dusty notes but also keeping the freshness/juicyness. Although a solid wine, I don't see the 94RP and 95 Jeb Dunnik ratings but maybe this just needs some more years of cellaring.. — 8 days ago

Domaine de la Janasse

Terre d'Argile Côtes du Rhône Villages Red Rhône Blend 2015

Rich, deep take on CDR. Powerful dark fruited aromatics which follow to the palate. This has the strawberry summertime character of the Grenache, but anchored & structured with darker fruit & moderate structure. Great with grilled stuff tonight. This album is one of the finest releases of 2019. It sounds just like a classic Tropicalia album from Veloso or Gil than something so new. If you like Brazilian music, get this. — 13 days ago

Chat Fou Côtes du Rhône Grenache 2017

I was expecting this to be weird (blend of Grenache and “white varieties” whatever that means) but it was clean, fruity, and had more tannins than I expected. (Still on the low end but they were there.) — 7 days ago

Château de Saint-Cosme

Côtes du Rhône White Rhone Blend 2016

St Cosme’s white CDR is exactly how I like white Rhônes. Shows plenty of depth & flavor but doesn’t have the waxy heaviness I find in a lot of them. This is bright, layered & beautifully aromatic. Prince’s originals are a great collection of songs he wrote, but were recorded by other artists. I usually don’t love the posthumous assault of recordings that inevitably happens, but this is pretty cool. — 18 days ago

Blackberry, also some barnyard funk, licorice, anise, very earthy and mineral, floral, violets, granite, young as fuck. Like all you can say it’s young. But it’s all there. Juicy and deep, but man this is young, deep and ripe, but bordering on overripe. — 14 days ago

Domaine des Bosquets

La Colline... Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2016

Picked up at the winery in Gigondas back in May, this is excellent. Great aromas of blue and black fruits, some lavendar, and a hint of earth, this has a beautiful mouthfeel with a subtle acidity and sweet tannins that keep it alive on the palate. Great, lingering finish. This winery was far and away the biggest surprise we had on our trip to CdP (in a good way!). Just reconfirms that Gigondas has some of the best QPR wines around (especially if you’re like me and love grenache!). — 3 days ago
