DOMAINE DE LA JANASSE C D RHONE TERRE D'ARGILE 2018
Vintage after vintage, this cuvée confirms the rigor of quality imposed by the Domaine de la Janasse. Its soft tannins, and its fleshy mouth with notes of licorice, black raspberry, and aromas of toasted bread, will make your taste buds shudder with pleasure. A great Côtes du Rhône to discover ... A sure bet for all lovers of La Janasse here is a Côtes-du-Rhône worthy of a small Chateauneuf!
"The 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Terre d'Argile checks in as close to one-third each of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre all from the Coudoulet region just north of Châteauneuf Du Pape. Beautifully balanced, this medium-bodied effort has classy notes of blackberries, kirsch, flowery incense, and ground pepper. With plenty of fruit, ripe yet present tannins, and a great finish, readers should snatch up this terrific wine.” Jeb Dunnuck
