Côtes du Rhône Rouge "Parallèle 45" 2015 - Paul Jaboulet Aîné


This red Côtes du Rhône definitely has the wow factor! We don't often find such quality in this price range. Easy drinking, this is a light to medium-bodied red with crisp red cherry flavours and a hint of black pepper. Not pretentious, but a really well-made wine that will be great in any circumstance... and for a very decent price.

Expert.pngWhat experts say

87-88/100 "A soft, juicy and high quality effort that over-delivers, the Cotes du Rhone Parallele 45 gives up plenty of raspberry, pepper and herbs to go with a medium-bodied, pretty, lightly textured style on the palate. It has plenty of character and you could do much worse at the price." (previous vintage)

86/100 "Direct, with plum and cherry compote notes and a flicker of fruitcake on the open, easy finish. Drink now." (previous vintage)

DWWA 2017 Silver.jpeg

Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards 2016 "An upstanding bouquet of red cherry and oak, the palate is juicy with small red fruits." (previous vintage)
