2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Valreas, Domaine de Bariol

Domaine de Bariol is a family run estate with 16th century origins, and this wine is a blend of Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Cinsault, Clairette and Viognier. The domaine is situated in Valreas, one of only 18 villages that are able to append their names to the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation name.

It's a deep coloured and intensively flavoured Cotes du Rhone with a lovely blackcurrant flavour dominating. There is a hint clovey spice to the finish that is well balanced, and the texture is smooth and easy going.
