Les Courtilles Cotes du Rhone 2015

Blended Red from France - Rhone
Review Date : 22-Jun-2017
Very dark, moderately deep ruby-red colour with black hues and a little garnet on the rim. The nose is elegant and evenly presented with fine aromatic notes of savoury dark-red berry fruits harmoniously entwined with dark herbs and notes of earth and game. This has good depth and gentle intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a sweetly rich and gently concentrated heart of dark raspberry fruit with savoury red berry fruits and subtle notes of dried herbs with earth and game nuances. The fruit richness is underlined by light, grainy tannin structure and the wine flows with good acid energy, leading to an elegant, lightly nuanced, lingering finish. This is a gently rich and sweet Cotes du Rhone with dark-red berry fruits and notes of herbs and earth on a light, structured palate. Match with barbecued and roasted red meats over the next 4+ years. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Shiraz and 10% Carignan. 80% of the wine blended with 20% oak matured Cotes du Rhone Villages from the Plan de Dieu. This is 14.5% alc. Winemaker: Bernard Schurr. 17.5/20 Jun 2017 RRP $27.99
