An extremely pleasant surprise from a mixed case purchased from Wine Library - I think this bottle was about $12. Rich, fruity and smooth red - dangerously easy to drink. Plush mouthfeel, nice acidity (paired well with a steak and some dark chocolate), not too tannic. Tasted more like an Aussie shiraz than a French blend, but I'm not complaining. Really nice wine and a great buy.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The old-vine 100% Grenache cuvee, the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues (from 80- to 90-year-old vines) is sensational. Gorgeous levels of garrigue, kirsch, creosote, licorice, damp earth and lavender are all present in this dense ruby/purple wine. Topping the scales at 15.4% alcohol, this is a blockbuster Cotes du Rhone to drink over the next 7-8 years. (By the way, the 2007 Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues is absolutely out of this world at present, should anyone still have some.)...93" WA 10/11 "A totally bombastic, thrill ride of a Côtes du Rhône, the 2009 Domaine de la Janasse Les Garrigues (100% Grenache from a single plot of 80+ year old vines) delivers a gorgeous kirsch liqueur-like quality to go with notions of licorice, rolled stone minerality, and loads of spice-box nuances on the nose. Full-bodied, exuberant, and ripe, yet also finely built, lightly textured, and beautifully proportioned, this gorgeous 2009 will stand toe to toe with any number of more prestigious Châteauneuf-du-Papes. Already accessible and delicious, it should continue to shine for upwards of a decade...93" RR 12/12
