Description

Bouches-du-Rhone means... “Mouth of the Rhone” - located on the southern coast of France. An area producing Rhone style reds from classic Rhone Grenache, Syrah, et al grape varieties. The regions lesser notoriety means you can delight in everyday drinking reds of Cotes du Rhone style and quality... paying considerably less for them. Last year we discovered this superb Le Grand Roi - we secured 800-dozen of the 2019... which sold out in 12-weeks. Earlier this year we landed 500-dozen of this gorgeous 2020 vintage, that sold out in 8-weeks. Having navigated the minefield of international shipping... we landed this 2nd 500-dozen shipment of 2020, which is being very much enjoyed, 103 customers giving an average 4.5 out of 5 rating… that’s how we know. 2020 was a high-quality vintage for the region, lower than normal fruit sets equalled lower yields of more highly concentrated fruit that ripened perfectly in the hot, dry vintage conditions. It’s a delicious medium bodied red delivering very high quality few other reds can match at the price. It would age nicely for 3-5 years... but why wait?

Smells

Enticing aromas of blackcurrant, boysenberry, liquorice, spice and wild herbs abound in the glass.

Tastes

A luscious palate with volumes of dark fruits infused with baking spices and savoury complexities. Firm ripe tannins, juicy acidity and mineral notes add a distinct seriousness that is unexpected for the price... enjoy through 2025.

a very pleasant easy drinking wine, soft tannins with luscious fruit forward flavours, and a hint of chocolate.

Great value wine

17th April 2023 | David Mann

We love this blend of Grenache & Syrah - every bit as good as much pricier Cotes Du Rhone. Medium bodied, pleasing on the palate, with fruity after-tones of boysenberries.
