The 2009 Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes is 90% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre and Carignan aged in cement tank and tipping the scales at 14.8% alcohol. The average age of the vines from the stony soils of the Plan de Dieu is 50 years. This is another full-bodied superbly concentrated wine with the classic black cherry marmalade/kirsch notes intermixed with licorice spring flowers pepper and a hint of garrigue. This ripe full-bodied wine is opulent voluptuously textured long and rich. Both of these wines over-deliver significantly for an appellation as humble as the Cotes du Rhone but that is the great beauty of this vast area of southern France.
