I was on my way out of Majestic Muswell Hill ,with 18 bottles and no intention to buy more, when I chanced upon this marvel on the counter for tasting.
Rich, spicy , fruity , herbaceous , warm , soft tannins, finesse , smoothness and a certain savoury note.
A really lovely Cotes Du Rhone Villages from an appellation in the centre of Southern Rhone between Chateau Neuf Du Pape and Gigondas.
70% Grenache providing the warm spicy fruit with a touch if Cinsault , Syrah and Mourvedre.
Great value at £8.99 from Majestic.
Highly recommended and for the price, a steal !

2010 really was a magical year in the Rhone. I’ve been guzzling Cote du Rhone Dom l’Ameillaud Cairanne from the Wine Soc similar price & lovely too.
