Les Vignerons d'Estezargues Cotes du Rhone Rouge "Andezon" 2016

External Review:

The old vine offering of 100% Grenache, the 2008 La Granacha Signargues, is super. Like its sibling, it was made and bottled without any SO2, a rarity. Furthermore, these vineyards are organically farmed. Sexy black fruit and floral notes are followed by a deep, full-bodied wine displaying plenty of kirsch, underbrush, and loamy soil notes. Good purity, a full-bodied texture, deliciously ripe fruit, and a seamless style make for a sensational bargain-priced wine that should drink well for 2ndash;3 years.

A red blend made up predominantly of Syrah, dishing out loads of mouthwatering plum and cherry fruit followed by a dash of spice on the finish.

A real sleeper is the 2005 La Granacha - Signarques, 100% Grenache from relatively old vines. Unfined and unfiltered with virtually no SO2, 90% of this wine was kept in tank and 10% in old foudres. It is an amazing bargain, deep ruby/purple with wonderfully sweet blackberry and cherry fruit as well as kirsch-like fruit with licorice, spice, and a bit of a floral note. The wine is opulent, full-bodied, and a fabulous bargain. Drink it over the next 4ndash;5 years.

This 100% Syrah is tank-fermented and aged, and bottled unfiltered for the American importer. It has been a favorite of mine in certain vintages. I just finished my last magnum of 1995 which was still youthful, and full of rich blackberry fruit. Made by a cooperative south of Avignon, it possesses gorgeously pure, rich, blackberry and cassis fruit, medium to full body, low acidity, and ripe, sweet tannin. Since 10,000 cases of this Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne make it to the United States, availability should be reasonably good. Drink this fruit bomb over the next 4ndash;5 years for its gutsy exuberance. It is an excellent value.

Textbook Rhocirc;ne with plenty of flashy fresh red fruit and ripe black fruit flavors. Light enough to suit poultry dishes, yet robust enough for red meats and pastas, this wine showcases the versatility of Rhocirc;ne reds.

A brilliant 100% Grenache cuveacute;e from old vines, the 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages La Granacha Signargues comes from an organically farmed parcel, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered with no SO2 additions. Deep ruby to the rim, with beautiful aromas of kirsch liqueur, melted licorice, ground pepper, and garrigue, it is a superb, full-bodied effort with terrific precision, definition, and concentration. This beauty should drink well for 5ndash;6 years.

For some time now, Grenache has been my varietal of choice. This one in particular is very dense, with a nose of dark berry and spice followed by flavors of licorice, dark red cherry, bramble, blueberry and tar, enticing you to cherish each sip as each nuance slowly evolves into a long, velvety finish. Although this dry, full-bodied wine can develop for a few more years, I recommend a decanter, an easy chair and some time to contemplate every intricacy this wine offers.
