Domaine de la Bastide 2019, Côtes Du Rhône FR
The New York Times selected this wine as one of the Best 20 Wines Under US$20 saying "Cotes du Rhone is the go-to choice at French restaurants, where it offers easy going refreshment that could bridge many disparate dishes. This bottle is a throwback reminder of how good those wines are, and perhaps another sign that Southern Rhone producers, who for quite some time have been aiming for power and impact, are returning to making wines of balance and restraint. It’s composed of 40% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 20% Carignan and 15% Mourvèdre from 25year old vines.
8-15 days fermented in tank with twice daily pump-over for full colour extraction and balanced tannins. Aged in tank for 3-4 months.
