Brilliant violet. Fresh red and blue fruits, white pepper and succulent flowers on the nose, slowly developing a hint of licorice. Plush and broad on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of allspice. In an ample but lively style, finishing sweet, smooth and long, with gentle tannins sneaking in late. (JR)
From a vineyard at the northern edge of the southern Rhône, this evokes cooler climes in its lean, peppery red fruit. And yet the wine feels substantial, a firm minerality lending it breadth and length. Pair it with a juicy, rare steak.
Borderline outstanding, the 2013 Côtes du Rhône Villages Vinsobres les Cornuds is a beautiful wine, and in this vintage it is a big success. Offering lots of jammy blackberries, spring flowers, peach pit and hints of white pepper, it’s medium-bodied, elegant and nicely focused. It has good acidity, as well as plenty of fruit, and should drink well for 5-7 years. (JD)
