Michel Chapoutier is a legend beyond words.

And we’ve got his 90-Point Cotes du Rhone for $12.

Sometimes it’s not complicated, and from a value standpoint, Cotes du Rhone goodness always has a place at the table when it comes to finding value from top quality producers.

Heady aromas of black currants, ripe strawberries, raspberry compote, white pepper, gardenias, and crushed river stones, this is juicy and voluptuous with red fruits galore and a spice note on the back to bring it all into focus. Silky and delicate tannins only add to the fun, and make for a truly spectacular bottle of Cotes du Rhone rouge that checks all the boxes.

Summer is about outside sipping and hunks of meat off the grill, and something simple and easy is always a wonderful companion for those solid Indian Summer weekend vibes. Trusting great producers is always a recipe for success, and we’ve dialed in an easy one to keep the party going.

And there are few better than Chapoutier! 

Lick your lips kind of deliciousness is the name of the game, and this bottle is an easy fix for when you just want something good without all the overthinking. A great bottle for either a solo drinking endeavor or with friends, this has crimson smiles written all over it.

Sit back, drink up and enjoy!

Wine Enthusiast

In this wine, hints of toasted caramel and licorice lend spice to intensely ripe blackberry and cassis. Voluptuous and creamy on the palate, it’s balanced by fresh acidity and a peppery fringe of tannins on the finish. Best now–2023.
