Food Pairings for Eric Texier Côtes du Rhône
The nose showed blackberry with savory spices, reminding me of mustard seed and pepper followed by mineral laden black stone. On the palate, it was light-to-medium bodied with zesty acidity, black fruits, grill char, herbs and orange peel. The finish was dry with cheek puckering tannin, showing tart black fruits and pepper notes.
Vibrant red purple in color. MUST let it breathe for an hour otherwise sour, red fruit & thin upon initial taste. After it breathes, the weight one expects of a Syrah comes out along with darker fruit flavors (cherries & plums) and rich mocha lushness. Silky and tannins are well integrated. Med+ acidity, med complexity and easy to drink. Dynamite with Toscano hard cheese with black pepper crust. Also good with Point Reyes Blue or Humboldt Goat cheeses.

This is a very good CdR. It's spicy. It's got some nice red cherry fruit, and some fresh, ripe tannin. I would say that it's the spice that takes it above the usual CdR. There's a lot going on here.
Did not have the same experience as others with this wine. Initial aromas of topsoil, cherries, berries, leather, and stone--all echoed in the palate. As it opened, the fruit came forward a bit more. I loved it, thought it was a terrific example of a very restrained CduR.
Nice sturdy cotes du rhone -- good fruit and nice balance on the oak. Great for an everyday wine.
Well worth the price. All the positive hallmarks of natural wine making.
External Reviews for Eric Texier Côtes du Rhône
Classic example of cool-climate Syrah from the northern Rhône. It shows fat, smoky tar and game over huckleberry and blackcurrant fruit; it has great acidity and plenty of staying power, so be sure to give it lots of air.
