Grenache blend - Les Courtilles Cotes du Rhone

$19.99 - $235.00

Rhone Valley, France - 

Les Courtilles (meaning 'a series of small courtyards') is named after the village winery founded by Bernard Schurr in 1977. Small batch winemaking allows Les Courtilles to create generously flavoured wines of individual character from the traditional grapes of southern Rhone.

This new vintage 2010 Les Courtilles Cotes du Rhone is sourced from 35yo vines on the right bank of the Rhone between Orange and Avignon. The blend of 48% grenache, 44% syrah and 8% mourvedre was hand harvested and de-stemmed (creating a rich-berry style) and has had minimal oak influence.

'Walks a delicious line between elegance and force.... Violets, peanuts, dark cherries, kirsch. Controlled. Tight. Needs some bottle age or a decent decant. takes the more popular opposition in its class to task. Flavour and interest at a terrific price.' Campbell Mattinson www.winefront.com.au

Ever since we first stocked two years ago, this wine has been a sensation - loved by all. There's spicy cinnamon, raspberry and violets. Easy-on-the-palate fine tannins, lots of sweet, soft fruit but also a typical European savoury edge to finish. Outstanding quaffer.

 

 

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent.

That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
