Le Grand Valmal Cotes du Rhone

New vintages! This is our 4th vintage with this producer and it really has picked up a great following as they are top notch Rhones

2021 Le Grand Valmal Cotes du Rhone Villages Vieilles Vignes...$18.99
60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre
This Rhone is the real deal and a sensational value!

Could easily be confused for a Chateauneuf du Pape. Floral notes accent fresh mixed berries in this 2021 Cotes du Rhone Villages that is made from a heavy portion of Old Vine Syrah along with Grenache and Mourvedre. The Syrah dominates and leads to a full-bodied wine but with silky tannins. It has a slight pepperiness to add some dimension and complexity. This wine is produced by the third generation on this estate and it is a fruit driven Cotes du Rhone with great roundness and complexity.  A big wine!!

2022 Le Grand Valmal Cotes du Rhone Generation....$15.99

This is a very impressive Cotes du Rhone and at a sensational price for this quality. It has everything you want it a great value Cotes du Rhone. It has an opaque purple color with a big nose that almost smells like a Northern Rhone. Large amounts of dark fruits like blackberry, black cherry, cassis and a great density and very full bodied for this price.  Great BBQ wine!
