Domaine Les Grand Bois
Cotes du Rhone Les Trois Soeurs 2018
Varietal: Syrah, Grenache, Carignan
Region: Cotes du Rhone, France
Appreciated by most Cotes du Rhone Organic Wine drinkers.
This vintage is showing exactly what to expect from a Cotes du Rhone wine. Great perfumed aromas of ripe black plums, slightly baked blackberries and hints of fresh mint. Soft and silky texture and tannins. A balanced wine which is offering great value for money.
A few kilometres north of Orange in the heart of Provence, lies the small town of Sainte-Cecile-les-Vignes. This is where Mireille and Marc Besnardeau are living their dream. The 46 hectare of Domaine des Grands Bois has been in the family since 1920, but it has only been since 1994 that Mireille and Marc have had full control.
Marc had previously been a sommelier in a top Parisian Restaurant and new full well that the only future was in raising the quality, while remaining true to the terroir. From 1998 the wines have been made in a new state of the art winery, and they have continued to increase their holdings with land purchases in both Cairanne and Rasteau.
We love paring this wine with grilled lamb chops based with lots of garlic and herbs, and on the side rosemary chips with garlic aioli. Enjoy!!
