Tasting Notes

One of our new Direct Imports, Les Coteaux de Legende is a side project from Côte-Rôtie winemaker Julien Barge of Domaine Barge. Julien Barge is famous for his old-school and long-lived Côte-Rôties. This Côtes-du-Rhône is a study in the engaging qualities of a Grenache-driven wine in the hands of a Syrah master. This 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah blend is sourced from a series of friendly growers in the Ardèche. The wine is fermented in concrete tanks with minimal intervention, aged in a mix of concrete and large oak casks and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It is an exuberant wine showcasing the deft hand of this top Northern Rhône producer. Perfumed and spice-driven with fresh cracked pepper and briary red fruit, this way over-delivers for an entry-level wine. An outstanding addition to our portfolio. *Certified Organic*

    Here's an excellent food-loving value wine ready to open any night of the week. It begins with a handsome nose of spice, red licorice, and ripe berries, while the palate displays brooding darker fruit with a lovely warm finish of clove and pepper. You can't go wrong with this overachiever!

    As soon as this is poured aromas of fresh Bing cherry and earthy raspberry jump from the glass. The wine is bright and lively with flavors of dark berries, red fruits and spice mingling in the middle, and a touch of red licorice on the satisfying finish. This is both gulpable and super food friendly.

    The sensibilities of a skilled Northern Rhone producer are on display here as this outstanding Cotes du Rhone not only features very fine Grenache but also highlights the addition of Syrah as it melds red and dark fruit aromas and flavors with pepper and spice. This is a substantial value that will continue to improve with a bit of cellar time. Great now, however!
