Henri de Floret AOP Côtes du Rhône 2019

If you haven’t tried a wine from the Cotes du Rhone before, then this is a great introduction. When producing a wine under the Cotes du Rhone umbrella, wine producers can take grapes from around the region to use in their blend. The Northern Rhone is most well-known for its Syrah and Viognier, while the wines from the south tend to be made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. This 2019 from Henri de Floret is fruit forward, with good weight on the palate and easy tannins. Notes of raspberry and plum and a hint of spice make it a great food wine or equally as good to drink on its own.

Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer (2018 vintage) "This cheeky little southern French red is an ideal summery red thanks to being light bodied, soft and smooth with red berry flavours in every sip. Cotes du Rhone reds are typically 60% Grenache, 40% Syrah and this wine tastes spot on with its red fruit aromas from Grenache, which are nicely supported by the spice from Syrah in the background. This wine’s light body make it a great entry for those new to reds."
