Domaine Grand Veneur Les Champauvins Côtes du Rhône

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2015 Vintage) Intense, brilliant garnet-red colour. It reveals lovely fruit, loads of body and a heady bouquet of ground peppers, raspberries cherry liqueur, currants, and spice box. Full-bodied and dense, it tastes more like a “baby Châteauneuf” than a Côtes du Rhône. A complete wine, rich and elegant, thanks to the harmony of all the elements which make it up.

    The 2009 Les Champauvins Cotes du Rhone is their single-vineyard Cotes du Rhone that comes from a vineyard just across the street from where the appellation of Chateauneuf du Pape ends. This is a big, full-bodied, more structured Cotes du Rhone, with notes of kirsch, licorice, black truffles and meat juices. It is a heady wine with moderate tannins that are still present. It will benefit from another 6-12 months of bottle age and drink well for 5-7 years.
