Delas Freres Cotes du Rhone Saint Esprit 2019
60% Syrah, 40% Grenache. Its deep color has a dark, plum-like hue. The nose is classically Syrah, with berry fruit, violet, and liquorice. It has a full, rounded palate with delicate tannins, making it unique in the Cotes du Rhone appellation. "Bright and juicy, with violet, plum and blackberry notes streaming through, laced with a light graphite edge on the finish.
Mont-Redon Reserve Cotes du Rhone 2019
The wine is deep violet red in color and the nose is intensely fruity, with mineral notes. This vintage brought remarkable freshness, as well as balanced tannins, for a wine that offers 3 to 5 years of aging potential. Dark berries and raspberries on the palate are offset by slight grilled notes and nuances of licorice.
Pierre Amadieu Cotes du Rhone Roulepierre Rouge 2019
Bunches of Grenache and Syrah grown on chalk and clay soils are strictly sorted to produce this cuvée. Hand harvests and traditional winemaking processes give a wine with red and black fruits aromas (blackberry and plum). A sweet touch of liquorice plus spice add layers to the sumptuous palate. A mouth filling wine in a pure Rhône style.
Bernard Schurr Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2019
An energetic nose bristling with red fruits complemented by earthy notes and spices such as clove and nutmeg all woven together by fine oak. The palate is medium bodied and shows vibrant berries, spice and fine but chiselled tannin structure. A wine of brightness that displays length and complexity and would partner well with most char-grilled red meats.
