Cellier des Dauphins Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2018
The Cellier des Dauphins vineyards lie in the Rhône Valley, with the foothills of the southern Alps rising in the distance. In these terroirs, sun-drenched vines swaying in the southern breeze, grow the renowned grape varieties that have made the Côtes du Rhône famous: Syrah, Grenache, Viognier and other local grapes. Such diversity enables the winemakers at Dauphins to produce aromatic blended wines of great complexity. This Côtes du Rhône Reserve is made from grapes grown on sunny slopes and harvested at the peak of ripeness from the villages of Richerenches, Vinsobres, Puyméras, Tulette and Saint Maurice. Made of Syrah and Grenache, look for a deep ruby red color and a rich mix of sun-baked black fruits on the palate and soft ripe tannins on the long finish.

This is an elegant French café style red wine…easy-to-drink yet full of flavor. Côtes-du-Rhône is typically made of mostly Grenache, a red fruit-driven grape which picks up hints of thyme, pepper and purple flowers from the soils of the beautiful sun drenched vineyards in the south of France. Serve with chicken with Provencale herbs, Mediterranean fare, spicy bean soups, cheeses, olives, rosemary flatbreads and more.

DecanterThis is delicious! Very classy and appealing aromas of flowers, garrigue, spice and forest floor. On the palate sweet vanilla oak marries into the charming and svelte herbal, red and blue fruit mix. It's full of flavour, super supple, super drinkable and authentic. Bouquet, taste, finish: all are magnificent.
