Les Traverses Côtes du Ventoux Red Rhone Blend

Medium to dark purple. Crushed blackberry, pepper and peppermint in the nose. Juicy strawberries in the mouth. Nice touch of acidity and soft tannins in the finish. Very easy to drink. Should have bought more. — 16 days ago

Domaine Roche-Audran

César Côtes du Rhône 2015

Medium ruby center and wide light pink rim. Quite ripe black plum , a touch of garigue and black pepper. Nicely rounded in the mouth , again ripe plum , that black pepper note also . Touch of warmth but doesn’t detract from quite a successful wine, reasonable length and nicely balanced acidity . It will last a few more years though probably won’t improve much, it’s at a nice stage right now . — 2 days ago

#ventoux is up and coming and this is a lovely example with cherry, currant aromas, typical #cotesdurhone garrigue herb aromas - so nicely balanced acidity with restrained oak and lively tannins. — 18 days ago

Domaine Jean David

Seguret Côtes du Rhône Villages Red Rhone Blend 2015

I LOVE this wine. It is so old school. So much like the better CDRs and CDRVs I used to drink/sell in the early 80s. Very earthy, funky, aged meaty nose. Peppery, roasted green herbs, iodine-tinged flavors. There’s spicy blackberry skins too, but that takes a back seat to farmy garrigue. Clingy and damn good. Cambie may have have Ginger-ized most of the southern Rhône, but it is really nice to find that Mary Ann is still in the house. — 9 days ago
