Côtes du Rhône, Vielles Vignes, Les Coteaux du Rhône, 2018
Origin: Rhone Valley
Grenache based red, plenty of fruit and flavour. From the co-op of Serignan (a town famous as the home of entymologist Jean-Henri Fabre in whose memorial garden are preserved 500 different types of vegetables!) just to the east of Orange. This is the heart of the Rhône and the mix of Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan make for supple, heartwarming reds like this simple but characterful Côtes du Rhône.
Soft, fruity and smooth red wine from the Rhone Valley
