Regular readers will know that Cotes du Rhone is my Holy Grail in red wine and I invite everyone to explore the pleasure to be had in the wine below. This Cotes du Rhone has a jazzy vibe happening between the vibrant fruit of the Grenache grape, and the peppery notes of the Syrah. And thereâ€™s a refreshing bite to balance the richness. And did I mention a spicy, sexy fragrance. My style of yummy! Gabriel Meffre is a respected major producer in the Rhone but for some reason the name is left off the label of this wine.
