Les Dauphins - Cotes du Rhone 2020 (750ml)
Les Dauphins Description
A decidedly southern style of wine with a bright garnet hue, a reflection of the sun-drenched terroirs from which it hails. It boasts a seductively smooth structure and notes of lightly caramelized ripe black fruits. The palate is silky smooth with notes of licorice and vanilla, revealing a good length and melted tannins.
James Suckling: 90 Points
A solid introduction to the reds from this appellation with stacks of blackberry fruit plus a generous and mellow personality, with earthy and spicy notes adding interest on the moderately dry palate. A cuvee of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah.
Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points
This classic Rhône blend opens in the glass with fresh blackberries, strawberries with cracked black peppercorn, and a bouquet of violets. Ripe and juicy on the palate with a stony finish, this is an easy-going bottling to crack open with friends on charcuterie night.
