02 Feb 2015 Cotes du Rhones from Guillaume Gonnet
The 2015 Southern Rhone vintage is dynamite, and this is one of our all-time favorite producers. The Cotes du Rhones pack a ton of value at great prices. The beautiful labels are appropriate for the finesse these wines have in the bottle.
“It’s almost impossible to find a bad wine and the best wines are full-bodied, pure, and concentrated with notable tannin. For the true wine drinkers out there, this is a terrific vintage that you’ll love to have in the cellar.”
