3-4-13 Word On Wine Review “To Rhone With Love”

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week Mary  and I are Rhone Rangers as we sample two most excellent wines from the Rhone.  Our first wine was the 2010 Domaine de la Colinne St. Jean from Vacqueyras $22.  This was the standard blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre and a nicely made example of what one can find in the Rhone!

Our second wine was the 2010 Domaine du Colombier Crozes-Hermitage Cuvee Gaby.  Just to parse this out…Domaine du Colombier is the producer, Crozes-Hermitage the area in the Northern Rhone and Cuvee Gaby the name of this particular wine.  This was made of 100% Syrah and would set you back $35.  Unlike many new world Syrahs this was delightfully well balanced and nuanced.  As a non Syrah enthusiast I liked this very much!  Check out the review and the wine and decide for yourself!
