2013 Domaine des Accoles "Le Rendez-vous des Acolytes" Ardeche (Previously $17)

SKU #1171458 Jancis Robinson

 *Good Value* Deep cherry red. Invitingly deep aromas of ripe but fresh red fruit, mostly cherry, but there's also a light floral note and something just a little earthy. The aroma itself is intoxicating. Ripe and dense and moreishly chewy on the palate. Tannins are thickly textured but rounded, like deep-pile fabric. Definitely the most obvious tannins of the three Dom des Accoles wines tasted together. Generous and forthright without being in the least heavy. Fine, dry finish and moderate length. (JH)  (6/2015)

Wine Spectator

 A fresh chalky spine drives the core of pretty plum and bitter cherry fruit, with an echo of violet through the finish. Pure and elegant. (JM, Web-2015)

Rhone Blends



- 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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- 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.
