Rive Droite, Rive Gauche Côtes-du-Rhône from Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues
The Wine Review:
The wine is made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault and has a crimson red appearance. On the nose it has an aroma of smoked meats, dried bark, tobacco, and hints of dried tomatoes. The nose gives you a sense that the wine will be quite savoury. On the palate it’s a medium-bodied wine that has savoury characteristics surrounded with light tannins. It’s has a little earthy bitterness while still remaining pleasant. It’s light and easy to drink, not memorable and doesn’t have anything that stands out, but for $15 it’s a pretty good value table wine that matches well with food.
