Côtes Du Vivarais, Southern Rhône

Alain Jaume & Fils

Domaine Grand Veneur Les Champauvins Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

Big, ripe, structured Grenache, rich redfruits, shows just a bit of almost too much ABV (15%), which leaves this showing a little booziness in the medium-long finish, with that said, still very nice!! — 4 days ago

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes-du-Rhone Red Rhone Blend

I had this before but this time, didn’t enjoy it quite as much. Went to throw away the bottle and had one more taste, and the wine pulled me back in a bit more. I don’t know why. — 17 days ago

Chateau de Fonsalette

Réservé Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2011

Great lunch. Highly perfumed fonsalette and even more so rayas against a very young and quite flabby Pegau. Elegance against power, feminin against masculin. — 4 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Mon Coeur Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2020

Really liked this one. I wasn't expecting it to have this much body. Notes of black cherry, a little bit floral, and a lot of slate. — 17 days ago

Château des Tours

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2019

Very high value for money although no longer cheap. Smokey, peppery, strawberries and cherries, long burn and way too young but enjoyable. — a month ago

Château de Montfaucon

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2011

Really nice color still, from a vintage lacking accolades, yet Rudi made a really fine little CdR this vintage, medium-long finish, very good! Cepage here is 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 10% Cinsault, 5% Counoise; in these earlier days, before Rudi segregated his Lirac fruit from his other CdR fruit (both in this CdR and in the “Baron Louis” CdR), this CdR was a screaming value with great quality; however, I now much prefer the basic Lirac and “Baron Louis” Lirac to the regular CdR still being produced at this domaine!! — 17 days ago
