2016 Guillaume Gonnet Le Reveur Cotes du Rhone 750ml
Skilled vigneron Guillaume Gonnet crafts this juicy, earthy Cotes du Rhone from 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, sourced from old vines grown in clay and sand. The wine is giving with bright red fruits, but gritty, with light red earth tones. Look for hints of green olive, pepper and a touch of smoke. From the excellent 2016 vintage, this is a solid effort and a very smart price. Drink through 2020.
