Bernard Schurr ‘Plan de Dieu’ Cotes du Rhone Villages 2015

Blended Red from France - Rhone
Review Date : 09-Oct-2017
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. This has a softly packed nose with dense aromas of ripe and aromatic dark raspberry and blackberry fruit harmoniously melded with garrigue herbs and some earth and game elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and sweet flavours of savoury blackberry and raspberry fruit intermingling with earth and garrigue herb notes. The palate has good depth and density with ripe tannin structure in support. The palate grows in flavour depth and robustness, with good acidity enlivening the mid-palate. The wine carries to a fine, firm finish of dark fruits and herbs. This is a rich and flavoursome Cotes du Rhone Villages with dark red and blackberry fruit with game, herb and earthy interest on a moderately robust palate. Match with roast game meat dishes over the next 4-6 years. A blend of 50% each Grenache and Syrah, from the southern Rhone, fermented to 14.5% alc. the wine aged 9 months in seasoned large format French oak. Certified Agriculture France organic. 17.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $30.00
