A fantastic value Côtes du Rhône with elegantly smooth, well balanced flavours that keep you reaching for more.
Estate: I was unable to bring to light any interesting estate details, other then Francois Jeantet is located in the Rhône Valley and consists of a very large 42,000 hectares. They also produce several other Côtes du Rhône wines and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Winemaking: Fermented in stainless steel vats, the varietals are vinified separately, then blended “to make a distinctive cuvée”.
Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour with inviting aromas of rose petal, cherry and traces of anise. Silky smooth, with blackberry and raspberry flavours balanced by pink peppercorn and dark chocolate on the finish.
