The Vidal Fleury Côtes du Rhône AOC is an extremely remarkable wine in many respects. It comes from one of the oldest and most renowned wineries in France. The Rhône-Pope John Livingstone-Learmoth gave him an excellent 4-star rating. At the Decanter World Wine Awards he won three prizes: 95 points & Platinum-Status & Best in Category. There were 16/20 points from Jancis Robinson. 94 BELViNi points from us. Hammer!
Dark red and with a black core, this wine is velvety to the glass. Its opulent bouquet, which would pay homage to a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, tells of blueberries, cherry compote, and dark chocolate, perfectly matched with subtle notes of Mediterranean spices.
Aromatic, juicy & long
A sensory feast that continues on the palate with the same compact aroma formation, the finest tannins and an excellently integrated fruit acidity. In the wonderfully long finish, juicy cherry provides further highlights.
This masterly blend of Grenache, Syrah and other grape varieties is available at a price that will amaze you to rub your eyes. Or to quote Jeb Dunnuck (by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate):“that won’t break the bank“ You don’t have to rob a bank to afford this luxury.
