Chateau Mont Thabor Cotes du Rhone 2016
“I'll take this one and that one and then some more. I'll use a piece of paper and the almighty pen, here we go again. Here we go again!” --- The Hives
We refer, of course, with as much gusto and unbridled, unfiltered enthusiasm as we can contain, to the astoundingly fantastic 2016 vintage in the Rhone. You MUST buy and drink these wines, they are likely some of the finest QPR’s ever made. Fourteen bucks are you crazy? Are we crazy?
GORGEOUS, shockingly inexpensive (you’re welcome, you DESERVE it, ‘cause we LOVE you) Cotes du Rhone from Mont Thabor, a winery we discovered some years back now in Chateauneuf-du-Pape (you may have bought Mont Thabor from us before, in which case you'll already be buying some of THIS!). Dating back to the late 1800s, Mont Thabor is a father/daughter operation that makes traditional-styled Chateauneuf and Cotes du Rhone from mostly old-vine Grenache (if you ever go to the area, let us set up a visit for you to see for yourself). Astounding value.
In a best-of-the-best vintage like 2016 this fantastic wine is juicy, perfumey, and flat-out irresistible. Raspberries, strawberry jam, crushed sweet herbs, anise, all in a smooth, soft, flowing texture that is not heavy or tannic in any way. A MASSIVE crowd-pleaser (especially at this price)....we'll sell out QUICK!
color is deep and shiny. This wine reveals some aromas of fresh fruits
and of spices. The structure is flexible, warm and pleasant.
