Kicking off the year with a French red. There are worse ways to great 2020. See how the 2017 Ferraton Pere & Fils Cotes-du-Rhone “Samorens” Red greeted the year.
It’s surface of the sun hot outside, which makes rose’ a must-grab item. So how does the 2018 Michel Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Pays d’Oc Rose’ do?
The 2017 Domain Bila-Haut L’esquerda was hard to pin down, but there’s something to be said for something that you can’t quite decide if you like or not. See my full thoughts.
Most of the country is getting into rose’ season (like there’s a limited time for it. HA!), and the 2018 Ferraton Pere & Fils Cotes-du-Rhone Samorens Rose’ isn’t a bad way to welcome hot, humid days and warm nights.
A great offering from Michel Chapoutier, this Syrah blend has a lot to offer.
Time to play catch-up, and I start with the 2017 Ferraton Pere & Fils Cotes-du-Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu. So is it worth picking up as we get ready to start counting calories again?
