About Cotes du Rhone 2015 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 and 5% Carignan. The aging is split for this wine. 70% ages in the tanks on the lees for added texture and complexity while 30% goes into oak barrels. After aging the wine is bottled unfined. This 2015 scored 90 points from Decanter and Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "Violet, bramble and fresh thyme accentuate bright blackberry and plum in this velvety, rich red. While its juicy, floral style is approachable, the wine is surprisingly bold in structure, framed by dense, penetrating tannins and brisk acidity."
