Château les Valentines Rouge 2013 Côtes de Provence


This is the real proof you can find great red wines in Côtes de Provence. The cuvée is made of 5 different grape varieties (20% each). It offers complex and concentrated flavours of blackberry, roasted herbs and a hint of liquorice in the background. The 12-months ageing in oak barrels provides a balanced structure and a peppery, toasty finish with a slight chocolate touch. A wonderful bottle for the price, just perfect to drink now. Highly recommended by Your Sommelier!

Wine-Enthusiast.jpg

88/100 "Bold and fruity, this ripe wine has rich black fruits that are still tied to young tannins. A ripeness to the fruit will allow the wine to age, with tannins softening and filling out. Drink from 2017."

  
Wine-Spectator.jpg

87/100 "This pleasantly rustic wine has a hint of dark humus weaving around the core of mature plum and blackberry fruit, while singed cedar and tobacco notes fill in on the finish." (previous vintage)
