Enjoys a deep nose with white pepper, graphite notes and bright red fruits. The palate is powerful and intense with black cherry and dark, muscular berry fruit, crisp acid and some neat, grippy, slightly salted tannins. The finish is long with berries and spice.
Tank/cask sample. 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan and other varieties. Four months in foudres and stainless steel. Rich and complete. Nice peppery note. An interesting wine.
The 2013 Cotes du Rhone is mostly Grenache and Syrah, and has a classic southern Rhone feel in its earthy dark fruits, pepper, lavender and spice-laced personality. Made in an easy drinking, fresh, correct style, it has plenty to like and will drink well for 3-4 years. Run by Guy Sarton du Jonchay, Vidal Fleury is a perennial source for high quality wines that won't break the bank. (JD)
This still has some guts despite the slightly late release, with cherry and plum paste notes inlaid with a solid dose of roasted alder. A bit woodsy in feel, but the graphite edge adds cut on the finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan. Drink now through 2018. (JM)
