Eric Bonnet has garnered quite a bit of fame with his great Chateauneuf's. But he also makes some outstandinf Cotes du Rhone that keep the house style. Bold and dark fruity but not too heavy this really is the South of France in a glass. An absolute bargain and the perfect "daily drinker"
Eric Bonnet's top end Cote du Rhone. This blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache comes from outstanding terroirs just outside the Chateauneuf border in Coudoulet, Champovin and Bois Lauzon. This drinks like "baby Chateauneuf and is quite a serious wine. Amazing QPR here!
Known for its rich, complex and expressive nose, the most recently named Cru of the Côtes du Rhône (Cairanne became a “Cru” in February 2016), is the most recent entry in our portfolio. Back in 2013, we took over the former Cairanne based Estate “Aéria” and elaborated a first of the kind. 12 hectares, located 22 km away from Courthézon, 15 – 50 year old vines, clay-limestone grounds on areas known as “Estévenas”, “les Douyes” and “les Guarrigues”, make a perfect age-worthy type wine alongside our Châteauneuf du Pape.
Nimble blackberries and sweet blueberries, minerals, graphite and black chocolate on the nose. This is a beautifully poised red with a linear, medium-bodied palate. Polished and driven. Delicious now. Drink or hold.
