Côtes du Rhône Rouge "Sens de Syrah" 2012 - Château Beauchêne


Here is another Côtes du Rhône that made quite an impression at our last tasting! Made of 100% Syrah, as its name suggests, it is a small confidential cuvée made by the Château only in certain vintages - essentially when the weather is not too hot. It boasts a beautiful typical "Syrah nose" of black & red berries, spices and cinnamon. Palate is very smooth, with very well integrated tannins and a perfect balance. You really need to have a try if you are a Côtes du Rhône fan!

What experts say  
  89/100 Rated 12 in July 2016 Decanter Magazine 50 Top Rhône Reds "Brooding blackberry fruit underlined by a seam of vanilla oak and a hint of aromatic herbs. The intense impact of black fruit on the palate is whisked along by keen acidity and enriched by notes of scorched earth. Juicy and well spiced with an appealingly savoury tannic frame."
