2009 Domaine les Grands Bois "Cuvee les Trois Soeurs" Cotes du Rhone

SKU #1060722

90 points from the Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cotes du Rhone Les Trois Soeurs (a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Carignan from 30- to 60-year-old vines) offers a delicious mouthful of wine for a song. Its dense plum color is accompanied by notes of white chocolate, crushed berry fruit, earth, and licorice. Broad, savory, and silky textured, this delicious, enormously satisfying 2009 should drink well for 2-3 years." (Aug 2010)

Here is another excellent 2009 from a Domaine that I love. About two-thirds of the blend is Grenache with the balance Syrah and is bottled un-filtered. The nose is dominated by both red and black fruit with some spice. Rich raspberry and blackberry fruit with more spice from the Syrah along with fine tannins provide a big mouthfeel that is balanced out by the good acidity. The finish is long with plenty of heady black fruit. There is a lot of wine for only $12.99.

This is a bitter wine with predominant notes of tar, leather, and earth. It might mellow with age, but right now it's difficult to drink, and I don't feel that way about too many Cotes du Rhones.
Drink from 2012 to 2013

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
