Cotes du Rhone 2017
This wine from Domaine de Servans has the two most important qualities in a basic Cotes-du-Rhone – charm and affordability. For my money, the region can’t be beat for wines that offer shear enjoyment without all the fuss. Delicious, easy going and value-driven, this Cotes-du-Rhone offers notes of ripe wild blackberry, tart red cherries and underpinnings of earth and black pepper spice. Medium-bodied with nice concentration and a graceful finish.
