Louis Bernard Cotes du Rhone Villages 2015

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Rhone, FranceWine Advocate 90 points!Louis Bernard Cotes du Rhone Villages is a beautiful red wine gem from the southern Rhone region of France. Maison Louis Bernard, based in Gigondas, France, was founded in 1976 in the heart of the Rhne Valley and its renowned Crus. Over the past 20 years, the winery has established close partnerships with more than 20 respected vineyard owners. Their wines follow this essential principle: the quality of the wine depends above all on the selection and maturity of the fruit. The production standards are stricter for Ctes du Rhne Villages than Ctes du Rhne, and these wines offer a more complex structure and a more powerful bouquet. This vintage is a blend of primarily Grenache and Syrah."Even better, the 2015 Ctes du Rhne Villages is an outstanding Southern Rhne that has loads of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruits, medium-bodied richness and a peppery, spicy style on the palate that makes it a joy to drink. It's a terrific value to buy by the case and enjoy over the coming 2-3 years."-Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 90 pointsEnjoy Louis Bernard Cotes du Rhone Villages over the next 4-5 years as an ideal accompaniment to lamb chops, skirt steak, spicy barbecue, grilled vegetables and aged cheeses.

Established in 1976 in the Rhône Valley, we strive to make terroir-driven wines expressive of the Louis Bernard style: fruity and concentrated while also supple and well-rounded. Boasting a beautiful aromatic complexity and good structure, our wines can be enjoyed young, but also have great aging potential. In order to obtain the high-quality grapes needed to make exceptional wines, Louis Bernard holds long-term contracts with about fifteen growers. Our oenologists and winemakers work closely with our growers, and we offer them incentives to surpass our defined level of quality. In this manner, we are able to obtain premium fruit year after year, enabling us to produce wines of consistent quality and style for a great value. Proof of our strategy’s success can be seen in the over thirty-five scores of 87+ points that we have received from Wine Spectator since 2000. The Chartreuse de Bonpas, a 12th century convent located just outside of Avignon in Caumont-Sur-Durance, is home to our organically-farmed estate vineyards, 42 acres of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Viognier.
