Combining the freshness and richness of the outstanding 2015 vintage this generously flavoured entry level Cotes du Rhone is a total no brainer at this price.

Displays excellent depth of colour for an entry level Cotes du Rhone. Very deep dark purple black core with a bright purple crimson hue. Quite perfumed the nose displays freshly crushed dark raspberry and dark cherry aromatics overlaid by incense with following faint scorched earth and spice notes. Juicy dark raspberry and subtle liquorice flavours meld into some inky earth like characters with subtle incense infusions and a good dose of spice also present. Despite the light to medium body weight there’s ample richness and it’s surprisingly concentrated for its price. Good fresh acidity combines with slightly dryish but fine grained tannins. Finishes with an aftertaste of spicy dark raspberries, liquorice, subtle incense infusions and peppered inky earth characters.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
