Chateau de Rouanne Les Cotes Vinsobres 2019
Les C tes represents the most powerful expression of the Rouanne terroir. Concentrated flavors of licorice, black pepper and gingerbread. Greatly textured with prominent saltiness and length in the finish. The distinctive freshness and saltiness of this Grenache, Syrah, Mourv dre blend makes it easy to pair with both rustic and sophisticated dishes. The smooth, red-fruit character of the wines make it a great choice for tomato-based dishes such as ratatouille, while the richness from the Syrah also allow it to pair with lamb, venison or beef. Winey and muscular, with cassis and bitter plum reduction notes leading the way, while baker’s chocolate, tobacco and warm humus fill in behind. Grippy and dark on the finish, with an old-school edge lingering. Syrah, Mourv dre and Grenache. Best from 2023 through 2030.
