Domaine La Cabotte Cotes du Rhone "Colline" 2007

We found this wine at Vinisud - a wine fair in Montpellier - earlier this year and agreed to taste with them partly because of the name. My partner in crime in terms of wine importation is Liam Cabot, you see, so it had a certain resonance. To make matters worse, thye even have a Cuvee "Gabriel", must remember to order some of that next time.

Anyway, we were amazed by the wine - rich, ripe crushed blueberries on the nose, soft smooth tannins, lush fruit on the palate, soft and elegant and very pleasant to drink.

Produced biodynamically by the almost impossibly French-sounding Marie-Pierre Plumet d'Ardhuy, this is very, very good Cotes du Rhone and quite a bargain, in my humble if biased opinion.
