Cotes du Rhone ‘Les Paroles de Femme’ Domaine Galevan, France 2014

14.50

What smells like a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, tastes like a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, has the bodyweight of a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, is made from the same blend of grapes as a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but is only £14.50? Correct! This is a great big mouthful of Grenache-based glory, plump and round and sweetly-fruited, but with an earthy, agrarian, broken brick savouriness that gives it breadth and dimension. Rich in strawberry, plum, bay leaf and pepper flavours, this humble Cotes-du-Rhone is a deadringer for a really decent Pape. Idle words? No siree, we have just tried it side by side with one of our favourites CNdP’s (Chateau Fortia 2009, £30.00) and it stacks up admirably. 14.5%. Drink now – 2018.
