Côtes Du Ventoux, Southern Rhône

La Vieille Ferme (Perrin & Fils)

La Vieille Ferme Rosé Blend 2018

This 2018 bargain rosé is light salmon pink in the glass. The nose shows red fruit with herbal notes. There is plenty of fruit on the palate, strawberry and cherry with a light minerality and easy acidity. The finish is short, but fruity.

Petit Ours Gris Côtes du Rhône Syrah Grenache Blend 2017

Fresh yet spicy. Not as much funk as I would have expected. Would be a good red to kick off a spring/summer lunch with. — 12 days ago

9.1

Reminiscent of a WA state Syrah, but more dense. Smoked meat, tar & crushed black peppercorn aromatics. Some “funk” too. On the palate, it’s herbal (oregano) and shows notes of iron. Low acidity. Great value. — 5 hours ago

Les Vignerons d'Estézargues

Rive Droite Rive Gauche Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend

White peppered dried berries, a very interesting nose indeed.

Fresh, bright fruit - think ripe plum, tart blueberry, mint. That white pepper crept back in just before the sweet tart acidic tannin and stony finish.

Château Rayas

Château de Fonsalette Réservé Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2008

Whenever we can find it, this is our March “anniversary” (of our first date) wine. First one was the ‘83 in 1987.

This ‘08 is on the decline but it still unmistakably a Reynaud Grenache. Spicy, earthy, iron-y, fragrant, powerful and elegant. I wish the importer would make more recent vintages available. We’re all cheated because it’s not. I had to shell out well over $100 to get this retail, clearly through a secondary market. Still, we’re happy to have it!

I have a 2004 waiting in my cellar and your tasting report makes me consider opening it soon... I hope it is not too late as I am anticipating this with high expectations.

Domaine Saint-Damien

La Bouveau Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2015

A cranberry nose and palette that very much intrigues not just for the main berry note but for an interesting nuttiness that comes forward as well. A very nice glass that I would have liked to have tried with a few food pairings. Buy a couple of bottles and play! There's a lot going on here. — 2 days ago
