Domaine D’Andezon 2010 Cotes du Rhone Red Wine
This is an outstanding Cotes-du-Rhone blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache. The Syrah vines are more than 40 years old and the Grenache vines more than 60.
It has a deep rich color and lush blackberry flavors. The body is full and the flavors complex, fresh and dry.
CDR wines are accessible and affordable. The Andezon is a special bargain and can be found for less than $20.
I enjoyed this while in New Orleans at a colleague’s house before heading out for dinner at Clancy’s Uptown. It provided an elegant and enjoyable start to a great evening.
