Côtes du Rhône Rouge, 2018, Domaine de la Présidente, Southern Rhone Valley

ABV-12.5%

This is a wine all about balance. When you open a bottle, you have to balance a board of cheese and cured meats in your other hand. As you indulge, you have to balance mouthfuls of wine, salty snacks and flowing conversation. When savouring the wine, you have to balance the fresh red fruit, blackcurrants and neat tannins with your urge to grin. It's basically science.
