Following a discussion about some of these on IW's tasting event thread I thought it would be a good idea to help keep track of these in one place.
2010 looks to be a very promising year in the Southern Rhone. Most of the CdR wines are <$20, and many are <$15. IMO they represent excellent value in some pretty tasty wines (I have a soft spot for CdR reds).
Here goes some random tasting notes. To this point I haven't taken formal notes on these, they're just general impressions. As I continue to taste through them I'll be a little better about actual notes. All are 2010.
St Cosme - lovely round wine with plenty of stuffing and lots of length. Very good
Domaine La Garrigue Cuvee Romaine - lasted 4-5 days after opening, refrigerated during that period. Very solid core of fruit. Candied garrigue. Very very good. Probably can last years based on my experience with how long the bottle stayed fresh.
Cercius - vague memories of a pleasurable experience. Will buy more to drink.
Andezon - not that great the first 2 nights, but showed great on the 3rd. Curious and thought provoking. I'll buy more to try again.
So far I'm 4/4 on these wines. My journey through them will continue, I suspect for several months!
Please post your notes and impressions here, we can all keep track.
