This is how good Cotes du Rhone should taste. Bramble fruit, tannin in balance. There was some ripe sweetness, and the alcohol was a bit high, but expected and reflective of the vintage.

Tiny production. Three barrels. Gorgeous. Focused. Cherries, spice, some raspberry. Blind I'd say it's an American Syrah. It isn't.

#SommCon - gripping and tannic. Black cherry, cocoa powder, blueberry compote and licorice.

Fresh plum, red cherry, and blueberry. Quite some black pepper on the nose and palate. Moderate acid and soft tannin. Medium plus body..

Nice and meaty, but could use some acid, some zing. It's close to oily. Great value though

Little tight with cherry and a hint of wood on nose. Nice color if s but lighter red than it could be. Plenty of juicy red cherry-berry. Smoother. Not as dynamic as many Côtes, but tasty highly drinkable stuff.

Easy to drink table wine - not too complex. Hint of black cherry.
