Rive Droite Rive Gauche 2018 Cotes du Rhone 750ml
Here’s a great example of the typical Southern Rhone blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, with a bit of Cinsault rounding it out. The wine’s name reflects the origin of the grapes, with the Grenache grown of the left (gauche) bank and the Syrah from the village of Domazon on the right (droite) bank. This is a warming wine for cold nights, to be sipped (or guzzled) in front of a fire and/or with a hearty stew. Dark plum and cherry fruit give immediate pleasure, notes of anise add complexity, and the soft tannins mean it can be enjoyed even without food.
