J. Vidal-Fleury Côtes du Rhône 2013
|Appellation||Cotes du Rhone|
Wine SpectatorThis still has some guts despite the slightly late release, with cherry and plum paste notes inlaid with a solid dose of roasted alder. A bit woodsy in feel, but the graphite edge adds cut on the finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan. Drink now through 2018. 10,000 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cotes du Rhone is mostly Grenache and Syrah, and has a classic southern Rhone feel in its earthy dark fruits, pepper, lavender and spice-laced personality. Made in an easy drinking, fresh, correct style, it has plenty to like and will drink well for 3-4 years.
