Robert Parker recently commented about some of his Best Buys in the June issue of the Wine Advocate. One of those best buys was the 2010 Domaine d’Andezon Cotes du Rhone. He called the Andezon 2010 “one of the very best bargains in dry red wine that readers are likely to find anywhere in the world.”
The 2010 Domaine d’Andezon Cotes du Rhone is a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache. It has a deep purple, almost black, color. There are a lot of floral characteristics on the nose. On the palate a ton of dark fruits including blueberries and blackberries, and even a little raspberry. Full-bodied and well structured. There is a lot of wine here for a such a reasonable price!
The 2010 Domaine d’Andezon Cotes du Rhone is $11.97 per bottle with $1 per bottle shipping on a Case!
Robert Parker 91 Points-- The classic cuvee, which has long been selected by importer Eric Solomon, is their 2010 Domaine d’Andezon, a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache. While there are critics of Syrah grown in the southern Rhone, even the cynics agree that the old-vine Syrah from the Gard has a special character to it. This wine comes from 40+-year-old Syrah vines and 60+-year-old Grenache vines, bottled unfined and unfiltered after being aged in both tank and concrete. Dense ruby/purple, with a stunning nose of blackberry liqueur and jus de viande (beef/meat juices), its thrilling, intensely pure, full-bodied mouthfeel, good freshness, and striking floral character all combine for one of the very best bargains in dry red wine that readers are likely to find anywhere in the world. This is super and should continue to drink well for another 3-4 years.
