    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee du Vatican has always been considered as the "younger brother" of the famous Chateauneuf du Pape. It is well worth questioning this assuption, however. This is a wine that has long since proved its credentials and which continues to astound us by its vitality. A true vintage wine, it reveals its attractions for the greatest pleasure of one and all. This endearing wine will always be present at table wherever good living and good humor are the rule.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark, ripe and focused, with mulled black currant and plum sauce notes laced with baker's chocolate and graphite hints. Displays a nicely fleshy finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made.

    Some Cotes-du-Rhone are too light, some have a carbonic maceration note to them, but this one... is just right. It lives up to its big sibling, it has ripe, rich fruits, sweet spice and a graet finish. Good with foods or just having a glass with friends. That will work, too!

    Tasted this last night and I was suprised by the quality. It is a better wine than the price or rating dictates
