Vidal-Fleury Cotes du Rhone 2012

Vidal-Fleury Cotes du Rhone 2012

750ML     le Ends 
Sku: 202008

A classic bistro wine. Medium bodied, with fine fruit, good acidity and ultra-fine tannin. Goes with most foods, except for a bloody steak or the lightest fish.

The Wine Advocate, 89 Pts
The same blend and elevage, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone is similarly styled, with ample blackberry, currant, herb and licorice aromas and flavors, medium+-bodied richness and an overall delicious, very drinkable profile. It should be a good value and offer solid mid-week drinking.

Wine maker notes
Grenache (65%), Syrah (20%), Mourvèdre (10%), some others with Carignan (5%).

Technical notes
Long and traditional maceration: 2 weeks with Grenache and 3 weeks with Syrah and Mourvèdre. A lot of "délestage" at the beginning of fermentation. Fermentation with Indigenous yeast. Controlled temperature for maceration at 30°C. 100% malolactic fermentation. Aged on lees 70% in tanks and 30% in large barrels (foudres). Natural clarification and stabilization by settling and one filtration (Cross Flow). Unfined. Maturation in bottle: at least 3 months before shipment.
