Côtes du Rhône Village, red wine from the Rhône Valley

Wine region: Rhône Valley - South
Registered designation of origin: Côtes du Rhône Village
The Côtes du Rhône Village reds consist of at least 50% of Grenache Noir plants and at least 20% of Syrah or Mourvèdre (or both). Whites are entitled to white Grenache, Clairette, Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Viognier. As for rosés, they are made from red plants to which are added a maximum of 20% of white plants.

We recommend the Côtes du Rhône Cairanne Village of Marcel Richaud, produced in Cairanne:
Seductive wine of beautiful stuff. The nose is well marked by the floral character, blackcurrant, strawberry and plum with hints of cocoa and mocha. A refreshing menthol arrives at the end of the nose. Palate: a supple, fat, but nevertheless fresh attack, a little dominated by tannins.
Vintage to privilege: 2004. To drink young, but without fear of keeping it for a few years.
Indicated price : 13? about.
The good agreement: Meats, cooked cheeses.
