More supple and evolved than the 2010, yet no less impressive, the 2009 Cotes du Roussillon Villages L’Edre gives up loads of smoked herbs, leather, spice and decadent black fruits in its voluptuous and textured profile. Full-bodied, concentrated and layered, it’s drinking nicely now, yet should evolve gracefully, and a drink window out to 2021 seems safe.

2012 Domaine de l'Edre Du Roussillon Villages Carrement....$24.99
I rated the 2012 Du Roussillon Villages Carrement the same as last year. Fruity, rounded and medium to full-bodied, with lots of blackcurrant, peppery spice, scorched earth and spring flower notes, drink it over the coming 4-5 years. The blend here is 60% Syrah, 25% Grenache and 15% Carignan, all of which was brought up in older oak.
