J. Vidal-Fleury Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2011
External Reviews for J. Vidal-Fleury Côtes du Rhône Rosé
Ruby-red. Cherry, raspberry and peppery spices on the nose and in the mouth. Supple and open-knit, with a slight jamminess and a touch of licorice adding a bitter edge. Closes on a spicy note, with a bit of heat and no obvious tannins.
Slightly better, with more depth and length, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone (65% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre and other permitted varieties) exhibits attractive olive, licorice and plum nuances in a medium-bodied, nicely fruited and balanced package. It too is geared for near term drinking.
