Cotes-du-Rhone Grande Reserve

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: France

Region: Rhone

Grapes: 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre

Tasting Notes: Quite a fresh array of raspberries and strawberries here with a wealth of bright fragrance, too. The palate has a super succulent feel with plush raspberries, delivered in smooth, ripe, fluffy tannins. Drink now.

Food Pairings: Red meats in sauce, game and strong cheeses.

James Suckling: Lovely, succulent fruit with cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors. Some flowers. Medium-bodied with round tannins and a flavorful aftertaste. Juicy.” 

International Wine Report: “The 2019 Jean Louis Cotes du Rhone opens to aromas of black raspberries, spice cake, violets and minerals all taking shape in the glass. This elegant red is well balanced and possesses a gorgeous silky texture which expands seamlessly through the finish. This is drinking beautifully today and should continue to develop nicely with some shortterm cellaring.”
