2015 Domaine de la Janasse Cotes-du-Rhone "Les Garrigues"

SKU #1329276 92 points Jeb Dunnuck

 From the same terroir as the Terre d'Argile, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Les Garrigues always comes from the same two hectares of Grenache and is brought up in foudre and demi-muids. Its ruby color is followed by terrific notes of spice, incense, orange rind and ripe cherries. Finesse drive, elegant, perfumed and complex, this nuanced, medium-bodied beauty is about as seamless and elegant as you're going to get in a Côtes du Rhône.  (10/2017)

James Suckling

 A ripe and exotic style with plenty of wild herbs, ripe raspberry fruits and pastry notes. The palate has a little heat to it. This is at the limit of ripeness. Drink now.  (8/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Another selection from the Côtes du Rhône Villages, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues is an all-Grenache cuvée that takes ripeness a touch too far for this taster. The black cherry and chocolate notes are rich and flavorful but accompanied by alcoholic warmth. Drink it over the next couple of years.(JC)  (10/2017)

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.
