Côtes du Rhône Rouge, 2019, Domaine de la Présidente, Southern Rhone Valley
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.
The Four Point Lowdown
- Raspberries, cherries and loads of spice
- Bright and juicy, and tres silky
- Matches well with a juicy beef stew
- Perfect for Netflix and child minding
