2015 Cotes du Rhone Rouge (Pères de l'Eglise, Domaine des)

Domaine des Pères de l'Eglise, Cotes du Rhone Rouge, Rhone Valley, France 2015

Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah

RED RASPBERRY & KIRSCH, BAZAAR-ISH POTPOURRI, ROSEMARY

The last few years have yielded a bounty of truly stunning Cotes du Rhones that seem to come closer to reaching the regal heights of their more impressively-pedigreed brethren from AOCs like Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape. This beautiful gem does indeed come from entirely within the bounds of the Chateauneuf AOC yet opts to declassify itself down to the sprawling and much more variable (in terms of quality) Cotes du Rhone AOC. The resemblance, however, is striking! Clocking in at a percentage point lower in alcohol content, it’s not quite as big as its big brothers, but the gorgeously exotic perfumes that we giddily associate with the output of the outstanding Peres de l’Eglise estate loudly affirm their presence during roll call.

Serving Suggestion: Roast turkey drumsticks w/ turmeric, cumin, paprika, & rosemary w/ corn oil-fried sweet potato wedges. Black bean soup w/ cayenne, cumin, garlic, & diced tomatoes over polenta.
