Cotes du Rhone 2011 Vidal-Fleury
Vidal-Fleury has a long history dating back to the 1700's. It was one of the wineries visited by Thomas Jefferson on his trip to France in 1787. Today they are considered one of the most consistent producers in the Rhone Valley. The Guigal family took over several years ago and have completely modernized the operation while still following traditional methods. A slow maceration is done for the the grapes in this Cotes du Rhone red. The blend is 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 5% Carignan and others. Robert Parker said "The 2011 Cotes du Rhone may turn out to be as good, if not better(than the 2010), as it exhibits a darker color as well as more berry fruit, meat and pepper notes."

    Comments about Cotes du Rhone 2011 Vidal-Fleury:

    The latest vintage of this value CDR is, simply put, delicious. The nose bursts with red and dark berry fruit allowing hints of smoke, earth and meaty notes to the forefront as well. It boasts depth as well as a lush roundness on the palate finishing dry and long. Impossible to beat for the price.

    • Beef, Pizza and Pasta

          Comments about Cotes du Rhone 2011 Vidal-Fleury:

          As the headline says, I have been very pleased with all my puchases from Wine Express until this one. I opened one bottle and the wine was thin, acidic with no finish. I doubt I will even use it for cooking. Perhaps, the inclement weather led to this disaster .. at least I hope so because another failure like this and I will no longer be a customer!!
