Bargain of the week

Les Courtilles Côtes du Rhône Grenache Syrah Mourvedre, Rhone Valley, France 2011 $20

Medium to deep red/purple colour. Spicy aromas, fresh and clean and bright. Soft, smooth, light to medium-weight palate with savoury aspects as well as good fruit. Nice flesh and textural charm. Subtle but positive spiciness. Exactly what you might hope for in a Cotes du Rhone, but more. Lots of fruit and flavour here. Very good balance and drinkability. Now to 2019. Screwcap. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
