Rhône

Côtes du Rhône

Tasting Note:

A predominantly Grenache-orientated nose of ripe plum and figs, the fruitiness continues on the palate yet is supported by a surprising and welcome freshness, that firms up the sweet plum and cherry fruit very nicely. Crisp, open and alluring but with some guts to it. A blend of 30% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Cinsault and 30% Mourvèdre from a plot of vines adjacent to Beaucastel on the east side. The vines therefore fall just outside of the Châteauneuf appellation but the soil structure is very similar to that of the poor, pebbly, clay-influenced vineyards of Beaucastel.
