Cotes du Rhone Les Peyrouses 2017 Alain Voge

A great wine, courtesy of my merchant, Lay and Wheeler.

It's lovely, good now and screams of Rhone. I assume it's a GSM blend though it does says 30% Carignan and I suspect it errs toward Syrah. CdR is so often disappointing and I don't buy much Rhone generally (if I do, it's southern Rhone like CndPape) but this is lovely, elegant and well balanced - a good mouthfeel of soft tannins and lovely dark fruits on the nose and on the palate.

A good sense of place - well made - could only be from this part of the world.

A long, peppery finish. Ca. £18 from L&W, drink now 2024. 16.5/20
