Cotes du Rhone Never Better


Every time I think I have the Rhone figured out another style comes along. More to enjoy and to increase my love of this region. A recent Rhone fling had me puzzled till I recognised its personality ““ it tasted and felt like a Pinot from Burgundy. Low-keyed, lightish in colour and full of suggestions. Sleek, charming and very seductive. Boy, was it ever a fast bottle.
I cannot wait to get into more of my stash of DE BORD. Mr Parker’s notes mention some crushed rocks but I prefer the back label’s promise of a “˜smart feeling on the end’. You will feel smart drinking, pouring and for buying this wine. As with most Rhones, I cannot imagine a food or situation it would not improve. BUY THIS.
