What we look for in a Cotes du Rhone is a Chateauneuf-du-Pape in disguise, because it’s only an arbitrary, man-made rule that dictates that one wine can only qualify as a Cotes du Rhone whereas another can qualify as a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, so why pay Chateauneuf-du-Pape prices when you can get an indistinguishable wine for half the price. Ta da! Lovely supple red fruits here, with a hint of garrigue herbs and scuffed leather all sitting on a medium- to full-bodied wine with supple, pliant tannins. This was a great vintage for the Southern Rhone and the gap between the top wines and the ‘ordinary’ Cotes du Rhones is much smaller than in other years, giving much more generous fruit. 14% alc. Drink now-2022.
