The new vintage is in! Domaine de Verquiere is one of the most consistent value producers we sell at K&L, and the latest vintage of their Cotes du Rhone is another great example of their attention to quality without sacrificing affordability. Estate-grown organic fruit (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, the same make up of the 2017 vintage) comes together harmoniously in this aromatic CDR, showing aromatic notes of red fruit, wet rock, stewed strawberries, and rosehip oil. On the silky smooth palate I notice wild strawberries, a light minerality, wet earth (classic to the region) and a subtle hint of mint. There is a particularly interesting/flinty kick in the wine's acidity that really wakes up the palate and lengthens the wine's finish.
