Just another example of why 2015 is so exciting in the Southern Rhone. Here's a Cotes du Rhone that - as Wine Advocate said about the 2013 - drinks "like a mini-Gigondas." It's big and ripe and full-bodied with generous raspberry, strawberry and blackberry fruit, a touch of dried spice and a hint of graphite. Finishes rich and smooth with fine-grained tannins. Delicious value!
