Louis Bernard Cotes du Rhone Villages 2000
Rhone Red Blends
from Cotes du Rhone, Rhone, France
One of the best deals you could every wish for! A top rated Cotes du Rhone full of fruit and spice, get this one by the case while its still around. A blend of Grenache and Syrah that is an intense and brilliant red in the glass. On the nose and palate - spices and strawberry jam. Harmonious with a long finish. Recommended food: Pork chops, teriyaki salmon, or grilled NY steak.
The Côtes du Rhône-Villages represents the level between the regional appellation and the village appellation. Comprising seventy-two communities, this region became an appellation in 1967.
As an AOC, the wines of the Côtes du Rhône-Villages must conform to certain rules outlined by the INAO, or the Institute Nationale d'Appellation Controllee. These include requiring that the main varietal, Grenache, be blended with Cinsault, Syrah or Mourvedre. The minimum degree of alcohol is higher while the maximum grape yield allowed is smaller than the regional Cote du Rhone.

A fairly priced Rhone-Village. I've tasted better even for this price. Ch L'Ermitage Sainte Cecile for example. It's tiny production makes it more difficult to find than Bernard.

Excellent wine - full bodied. Compliments pizza or filet mignon. Just finished my first bottle with Friday night firends. Plan to order a case!

What a bargain. This is a great wine for the money. Smooth and elegant with a nice long finish.
