2010 Domaine de la Janasse "Terre d'Argile" Côtes du Rhône-Villages (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1088592 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The amazing 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Terre d'Argile may be just as good as the 2007. A black/ruby color is followed by abundant aromas of cassis, blackberries, black cherries, licorice and a hint of charcoal. The wine possesses good acidity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and terrific precision. It is a big wine that should age well for up to a decade.  (10/ 2011)

88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Inky purple. Brighter and higher in pitch than the straight Cotes du Rhone today, displaying aromas of raspberry, rose and Asian spices. Fresh and nervy on the palate, offering powerful red berry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Fine-grained tannins add grip to the long, spicy, well-focused finish.  (5/ 2012)

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.
