2010 Domaine Monpertuis Côtes du Rhône

I am a sucker for Rhône wines and came across a great find last week. Domaine Monpertuis is a winery in Chateauneuf-du-Pape that has been run by the Juene family for six generations.  Their 2010 “Vignoble de la Ramière” Côtes du Rhône is organically farmed, unfiltered, and a great value. 

Rhone

Predominantly Grenache with a touch of Syrah, this Rhône has aromas of cherry, herbs and earth.  A nicely structured palate shows tastes of black cherry, blackberry, spice and herbs followed with a juicy finish.  A sophisticated wine for the price!  It pairs nicely with pork or salmon.  (13.5% alcohol, $14)
