Duché D'uzès, Southern Rhône

Mas des Volques

Esus Duché-d'Uzès Red Rhone Blend 2016

McCarthy & Schiering, $12

Got tobacco notes on the cork and smoky dense jammy fruit in the glass. More of that jammy fruit on the palate, getting plum and blackberry, followed by a vanilla and spice, and finished with a peppery tannic and slightly bitter smoke. A touch hot but understandable at 14.5%, and pretty light on acid but still balanced. A bit heavier bodied than I usually prefer but really enjoyed it, one of my favorite Syrah dominant wines I've had, good value too!

Des Racines Aux Vins Chenançon

Dan R

Chenançon is a new variety for me, this was grown down in the Gard. High toned and earthy, this had a wispy feel in the mouth, somewhat muddled but vibrant as well. Red fruited with soil, some poop and herbal notes. This picked up focus with food, becoming better delineated with a macerated cherry core. On the natural side of things. Quite enjoyable, an interesting wine and all in all a pleasant discovery. — a year ago

Domaine Bourdic

La Rabassière Pays Duche d'Uzes Viognier Blend


Modern, oaked white blend from an innovative coop near Uzes, France. 40 Viognier, 30 each Grenache blanc and Roussanne. Bought this in 2012 at the coop. Label advises to drink within 3 years. Which would have been last summer. Label advises drinking temp of 10•C, which is the exact temp of my cellar right now. So this was an easy choice to open.
On the nose: grapefruit, light pineapple, roasted sesame, light oak, orange, rosemary, toasted coconut.
Med body, nicely balanced acidity. Grapefruit juice, sesame oil palate. Pepper, grapefruit, liquorice finish. Reminded me of a SA white oaked blend, which is not a bad thing.

Duché d'Uzès White Rhone Blend 2018

Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne.

Floral, pear, citrus, peach, golden grass. 13.5% ABV

Based on this wine, Duché D’Uzes is the Santa Barbara region of California. All notes considered, the peach notes of Grenache Blanc are amazing,and hard to find the equivalent of outside of Santa Barbara (and Paso Robles).

Most definitely has my vote in the $15 range
