9.0

#cotesdurhone nice play between #grenache and #syrah medium color and medium+ aromas. Slightly chewy tannins but all in all, a smooth drinking, joyful wine and just what I’m looking for from a #cdr — a year ago

Prestige Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2017

Delightful #gsm #cotesdurhone Decanting is a must - my impatient palate detected some weird funk and a torrent of unbalanced vanilla on the first taste that disappeared after a half hour in the glass. Subtly spicy bramble berry, black olive, and Provençal herbs on the nose. On the palate espresso becomes apparent. Succulent acidity, substantial yet genteel tannins on a long finish. — 3 years ago

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes-du-Rhone Red Rhone Blend 2016

I took a guess that this #beaucastel “Coudoulet,” which was a third of the price of their renowned CdP in a fine restaurant wine list, would still be awesome. No surprise the excellence of this Château carries through here - elegant fruit-forward #cotesdurhone, velvety tannins and herbs + spice touches. Delicious wine paired with coriander lamb chops. — 3 years ago

Domaine Rabier

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2018

Other than Châteauneauf-du-pape, this is probably one the better #cotesdurhone I’ve had from #wsjwineclub. Weighty nose featuring cassis, blackberry preserves, slate, garrigue, forest floor. Meaty palate with bitter cocoa, some acidity and chewy tannins. I might have laid it down a few years to see what happens but the weather’s getting cooler here in Houston so here we are. — 2 years ago

Cuvée du Vatican

Réserve de l'Abbé Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2017

Fruit-driven character on this #cotesdurhone, cassis and bramble berry up front, finishes with some toffee and vanilla notes, plenty of acididty and a long finish with lingering tannins. It's a bit thin at the end and missing some herbs and spice to make things more interesting. #wsjwineclub **Update: just this week I’ve been enjoying this wine a glass a day and it just keeps going like the Energizer Bunny, virtually no oxidation and it’s opened up more with a longer finish. Rhône blends like this continue to surprise and impress me.

Principauté d'Orange Red Blend 2017

Up and coming region of #cotesdurhone. Cassis and garrigue herbs and baking spice smells. Juicy acidity, dark chocolate and espresso and medium tannin that linger into a coffee-bitter finish. Good value from #wsjwineclub — 3 years ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2016

Excellent #cotesdurhone offering from Guigal - I’m easily wowed by the layers of herbs and peppery spice, balanced fruit and juicy acidity on the palate. — 3 years ago
