A similar blend to the 2017, the 2018 Côtes Du Rhône is in the same ballpark and offers loads of dark fruits, ground herbs, and peppery garrigue in its classic Southern Rhône style. Drink this medium-bodied, rich, fleshy, exuberant beauty on release and over the following 4-5 years.
We revisited this classic by looking forcool balances that we love. The grapes are vinifiedand raised only in concrete vats to preserve thepurity of the fruit. This classic Rhodanian assemblage or theGrenache dominates, is a bright fruit that combinespower and freshness. It will accompany perfectly thegrilled meats, pizza and cold cuts.
Blend: 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah
