J. Vidal-Fleury Cotes du Rhone Rose 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very gentle on the nose with faint scents of earthy fruit, accented with a touch of white pepper. Rather restrained on entry though, with a nice core of strawberry fruit that’s framed with a hint of lightly pithy orange peel and some light, sweetly herbal suggestions. On the finish, this gains weight and turns more obviously fruity with a touch of sugar lending a sweet note to the finale. There’s not enough sweetness for most people to notice; but it's here, adding weight and roundness in the mouth. 85pts

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.

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.
