A pleasant, simple, light Cotes du Rhone which is excellent to be enjoyed on its own or with some good steak, barbecue or even salad!

We enjoyed it while we were waiting for our barbecue! And then with grilled meat and sausages!

It’s a southern Rhone blend, and they usually consist of a variety of grapes, the most important of them are grenache and mourvèdre. This spesicfic wine has 40% grenache, 20% mourvèdre, 20% carignan (60 years old and more), 15% syrah and 5% cinsault.

It’s crisp, with fresh fruit flavors, pleasant and moderately tannic!

A great wine for a great company! 🙂


P.S. My ultimate, “secret” research tool for wine is The Wine Bible.

It’s great book by Karen MacNeil who is considered “America’s missioanary of the vine”.
