Cotes du Rhone Reserve des Armoiries 2016
One of our most eternally popular wines - as much for its quality as for its affordability. Now in handy BBQ-friendly screwcap closure. The Réserve des Armoiries is great value with an all Mediterranean grape blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, Carignan,and Cinsault. The vineyards selected to produce this wine extend over 225 hectares. It relies on diversity and chemistry of soils, grape varieties and the age of the vines. More than five vintages were required to obtain the perfect balance for this cuvée. Our perseverance allows us to keep a constant typicity vintage after vintage.
The upfront and honest character of the wine with its fruit-filled nose and palate redolent of plums, spice and damsons, all wrapped in a medium-bodied framework of supple character. This wine cries out for similar food matches like loin of lamb, rich meat stews, barbecued ribs - indeed anything vaguely meaty, but pairs wonderfully alongside a wide variety of cheese.
