Here’s some of what Louis Barruol says about this wine at the excellent Saint Cosme website: “All Syrah. Two sources compose this wine for many years now: I am impressed by the way they are consistant in quality whatever the vintage is. Vinsobres brings the freshness, the complexity, the strength and the relief. The ‘villafranchiennes terraces’ from the Gard area (huge terraces of rolling stones) generate the colour, the power, the generosity of a southern Syrah. These two go so well together, are so complementary, that I will not change this recipe. What I look for in this wine is a bright fruit followed by a well-structured mouth with a good texture. I am not necessarily searching for an aging potential, but apparently, this bottle does age. The Syrah from the southern Rhone does not have the finesse of a good northern Rhone syrah, but it has fresh fruit full of charm. In 2012, our wines from Vinsobres are exceptional. Harvesting late allowed us to vinify great wines and they’ll be the base of our 2012 Cotes du Rhone. Look for redcurrant, blackcurrant, liquorish, and violet.” This is a gorgeous Cotes du Rhone that’s great for drinking today and over the next 3 years. The price makes this tempting to serve with burgers and bratwurst on the grill–and it’s surely one of the best wine choices you can make for these simple summer meals. But this 100% Syrah Rhone red has the body, style and texture to be equally at home in your best crystal accompanying an herb and mustard crusted rack of lamb. Try it!
