- Dom Rose Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2014 Product #31608 (In Stock)
Last year we brought you Damien Rozier’s outstanding Plan de Dieu 2012, a terrific, gutsy, Cotes du Rhone from the pebbly soils of one of the Southern Rhone’s most underappreciated regions. Now we’re featuring his Cotes du Rhone Villages 2014 and we know it’s going to thrill you just as much! It’s a robust blend of hand-harvested Grenache plus Mourvedre and Syrah with a bit of time in neutral wood casks. But mainly it’s a ton of fun in your glass.
Big aromas of purple fruits – plum, berries, dark cherries – lead to juicy and fruit-filled flavors of crushed blue and black berries, sweet cherry, licorice and classic Rhone pepper and garrigue. There’s a nice dose of fine-grained tannin here, making this a terrific match for casual foods, but more than enough suppleness and fruit to be enjoyable all on its own. Ready to go tonight and sure to get even better over the next couple of years, this is a joyful wine to warm up any cold winter night.
