Vrac Cotes du Rhone 2019
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
In the old-school approach, a Côtes du Rhône red wine would almost always have seen some barrel-the same barrels sometimes used for too many vintages-leaving the opportunity for brettanomyces or other unfavorable bacterial life to flourish and become part of the aromatic profile, often noted as "barnyard". But in the new school of winemaking, every attempt is made to capture the freshness of fruit while leaving room for the stony minerality to show through, so no oak is used at all. The result is a delicious, fresh wine that delivers a true sense of place.
