Great Rhone....

"If readers have not yet discovered this exceptional small estate run by proprietor Georges Perrot, it’s time they do so." -- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2010 Domaine la Colliere Cotes du Rhone...$13.99

A sleeper of the vintage, the 2010 Cotes du Rhone, which includes Grenache and Syrah in the blend, possesses surprisingly full body as well as concentrated, sweet blackberry and kirsch notes intermixed with hints of spring flowers, pepper and earth. Fruity, hedonistic, complex and opulent, it can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years. 
Rated 88-90 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
