Really a flavorful wine that combines all the best elements of a rich Languedoc with a smooth finish. Seems to go well with fish, beef, poultry or just by itself. One of the best I've tried.
a wine to linger over and talk about .serve to friends. Great for the price. with food or by itself.
Deep garnet color. Slight lactic aroma (on opening) then red grape, red fruits, smoke & violets. Dry, peppery GSM taste followed by a smoky, earth over iron w/ slight burnt tire flavor. Not a subtle wine, it has plenty of acidity & is good w/ grilled meats & stew. However, it's not worth the $ over other Rhônes (Pierre Amadieu "Roulepierre" @ $9). Decant before serving. WB13.
