LOUIS - Cotes du Rhone Villages

LOUIS - Cotes du Rhone Villages, FRANCE

An aroma of earthy spices and ripe red fruit jumps from the glass. Blackcurrant and black pepper come through on the palate with a hint of minerality. Smooth tannins linger on the rich finish.

VINEYARD

This Côtes du Rhône Villages is a selection of Grenache and Syrah grapes from two of the most beautiful terroirs of Côtes du Rhône Villages: Sablet and Signargues. The winery created an outstanding balance between the two terroirs: Sablet’s clayey sandy soils bring finesse, freshness and elegance. Signargues’ terraces of rolled pebbles, over an old Rhône river bed, offer minerality and body.

Wine facts

Label Notes:

Louis Amstrong, Louis the WIVth, Louis Beranrd… this name seems to be reserved for exceptional people and that is why I called this special wine "LOUIS". I have selected two complementary outstanding terroirs of the appellation to create a well-balanced blend of 80% Grenache & 20% oak-aged Syrah. äcked with luscious, spicy fruit flavors and a ripe, complex nose, it carries all the attributes that its famous name implies. I recommend it with grilles meat, smoked ham and other full-flavoured dishes worthy of a king's table ! Delicious now, it can be cellared for 5 years. Sylvain, Louis' winemaker.
