Tasting Notes

With really concentrated, yet pure red fruit flavour this is a fantastic wine with food, or left to breath for a few hours it'll be a fantastic way to watch the sun go down.

Chateau Rochecolombe CDR Villages 2013 has been awarded with 88 points (Wine Spectator), so it is indeed a great wine for its price.

Great complexity, aromatic and good length in the mouth, tannins are silky but powerful. Its aromas of vanilla slowly evolve into more complex aromas of candied fruits, grilled and roasting. The wine has a dash of cloves, sign of great maturity of grapes. Drink and/or store up to 10-12 years to take advantage of its complexity.

Food match: this powerful wine will complement perfectly with prepared meat (wild boar stew, venison and other game).

This Cotes du Rhone Village wine expresses lively blackberry and black cherry aromas, and notes of fragrant herbs. Succulent, rich plum compote flavours are backed by sweet herbs and a peppery crunch. It has an opulent yet enticingly fresh mouthfeel, all enhanced by smooth tannins and a breezy finish. Polished and characterful.
