La Chasse Cotes du Rhones

blog 126

The Cotes du Rhone appellation is one of the world’s largest wine-producing regions. The variety of grapes is amazing. The standard can vary; some of the cheaper reds are better than the often overrated Chateauneuf du Papes (John Lewis foodhalls – I’ve not quite forgiven you for the awful Christmas day red – 2 bottles – I bought from you…) This is pretty good for the money and would go well with red meats, cheeses, Sunday lunch etc.

Tasting notes: oaked, slightly peppery – this is typical cotes du Rhone.
