Domaine La Garrigue Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Romaine
50% Grenache, 50% Syrah
Cotes du Rhone AOC
A year-in, year-out spectacular value, the 2014 Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Romaine is a blend of that spends 10–12 months in concrete prior to bottling. A custom cuvee made by importer Eric Solomon and consultant Philippe Cambie, it comes from 60- to 90-year-old vines and is basically a declassified Vacqueyras (at a Cotes du Rhone price). Loaded with garrigue, saddle leather, herbes de Provence and both kirsch and blackberry fruit, it is medium to full-bodied, layered and supple on the palate, with fine tannin emerging on the finish. Showing the vintage nicely and loaded with character, it should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming 4–6 years.
