Domaine St Jacques, Cotes Du Rhone - 2014

A fresh Grenache-based Rhone from Cellier de Princes

- Red wine with fish. Well that should have told me something.
James Bond, From Russia With Love (1963)

Rhone wines are more associated with substance than freshness; however, freshness is a key feature of Cellier des Princes' wines, making them a surprisingly good match with fish.

Domaine St Jacques, Cotes Du Rhone, 2014 GSM+C blend; juicy redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit, with blackberries and liquorice. Balanced and fresh with pencil shavings and garrigue.

Good.

It has a a Gold medal from Paris.

Match with fish and an Ian Fleming novel - also with beef, from burgers to roast.
