The 2017 Côtes Du Rhône from Michel Gassier has a pretty, medium-bodied style. Deep ruby red in colour. This wine delivers aromas of violet, garrigue, cracked pepper and ripe fruit flavours of sweetened raspberry and blackberry. The palate is full and velvety, revealing flavours of cassis, blackberry and hints of rosemary and thyme. Exceptional bang for your buck; this Cotes du Rhone is packed full of character and is perfectly balanced, providing a lavish and lingering finish endowed with fine grain tannins and pleasing freshness. Enjoy this wine over the next 4-5 years.
Food matches: Pair with stewed lamb or beef with fennel, red pepper and tomato.
