Tasty, fruity, well-rounded. Not exactly breaking the oak planks over my head, but jabbing me in the ribs with them a bit. A solid table-wine, but not a write-home-about-it experience.
Deep purple. Light nose of red fruit and leather. Dry, high acid, medium tannin, medium body. Red fruit and pepper on the (rather short) palate.
I'm not a huge fan of the regular Bernard Cotes-du-Rhone, but this Villages was surprisingly good. Nothing above and beyond what you would expect, but a great example of a well-priced entry level rhone wine.
