DRINK OF THE WEEK  -
13th February 2017
Blason du Rhone, Cotes du Rhone Villages
Waitrose 6.99 (offer price)
Drinker Rating 90

As a confirmed grumpy bastard I'm not doing a Valentine's recommendation, no, nothing pink and frivolous for me, instead a serious red.

This is a classic Rhone red, grenache led but lower in alcohol than you might expect. It makes up for it with a solid juicy black cherry palate, a touch of spice and firm but not overbearing tannins.

This super little Rhone is on offer until 21/02 so get some in to see you through the last of the cold of winter.
