Most wine drinkers tend to belong to either the ‘easy drinking’ or the ‘give me something interesting’ camp, with little cross-over. However, every now and then a wine comes along that I feel would work for both groups – such as this Cotes du Rhone. It’s yummy and smooth, but it also feels earthy and delivers tangy refreshment. If it’s possible that you’re not already a Cotes du Rhone fan, this should be the wine to get you on board. Did I mention delicious!
