The Les Dauphins Cotes du Rhone Réserve Rouge 2015 was also enjoyed this week. This wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mouvèdre from chalky clay vineyard soils in the southern Rhone Valley, south of Drôme and north of Vaucluse. This wine was a bit bigger with a darker fruit profile. This dry, full-bodied red wine has pronounced aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants with licorice and a subtle earthy note in the lingering slightly savory finish. Fresh and smooth, this wine is also recommended. 14% ABV
Both of these wines were sent to me as media samples for review purposes.
My opinions are my own.
