There are good vintages, there are great vintages, and then, there are “Power Vintages.”
For much of Europe, and especially France’s Rhone Valley, 2015 was a “Power Vintage.” Thanks to near-perfect growing conditions, producers across the valley are delivering their best bottlings in years. Most of the Rhone’s top wines have yet to be reviewed, but Wine Spectator has already lauded the Southern Rhone’s 2015 vintage with a “classic” rating of 94-97 points. In an in-depth article, the good folks at Wine Spectator detail the vintage’s many strengths. Long story short: this is going to be a great year to stock up on age-worthy Rhones!
Today’s steal will make a great start to your collection of 2015 Rhones. Rich and densely packed, it’s built like a much spendier Chateauneuf du Pape, and is sure to improve in the cellar over the years to come. And best of all, thanks to an incredible one-time deal from our local distributor, you have the chance to secure some at the hottest pricing in the NATION, while supplies last!
Allow us to proudly present, along with its glowing review from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, the
Ogier ‘Artesis’ Cotes du Rhone 2015
60% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre
“More black fruit-driven, with lots of black olive, tapenade, pepper and earth, the 2015 Artesis medium to full-bodied, nicely textured and concentrated on the palate. It’s a seriously good Cotes du Rhone that will evolve gracefully through at least 2023.”
Release price: $20
