Côtes du Rhône Les Deux Cols, Cuvée d’Alizé 2013
A new vintage of a wine produced by Irishman Simon Tyrrell. No ordinary Côtes du Rhône, but a very nicely crafted wine with excellent purity of fruit and a lovely freshness. Delectable just-ripe dark fruits, with prefect balance and a smooth palate. I would drink this with all manner of white and red meats, game and firm cheeses.
