VISAN CÔTES DU RHÔNE-VILLAGES 2018 AC
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer DOMAINES ANDRÉ AUBERT
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Here is a well-made, fresh, ripe, ready-to-drink Cotes du Rhone-Villages that really hits the mark when it comes to value and drinkability. Deep purple colour, the attractive, nose shows gently spicy, juicy, ripe, plum-raspberry fruit with some floral, violet-tinged, mineral notes. Dry, medium bodied, bright, fairly juicy, ripe, plum-raspberry-blueberry flavours with a gently complex, faintly earthy, quite well structured, lingering, crisp finish. This very tasty blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah has a surprising 15.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L21036 on the upper part of the glass bottle. CSPC 224915
