Cellier Des Princes
I have been impressed with all the Cellier Des Princes wines I have tried - all have been well-made and as a minimum thoroughly enjoyable. So full marks for consistency.
The wines have also been mostly atypical of the Rhône, being distinctly fresh and more red-fruited than dark-berried.
Of the last two, the Cotes du Rhone is something of a return to more-typical Rhonesque form; it has a Gold medal from Paris 2015. The Gigondas, a GSM blend, has the freshness of the rest of the range.
La Couronne Du Prince, CdR 2013 ripe, juicy dark berry and plum fruit, spice and earthiness; fresh, long and substantial with fine, perfectly ripe tannins.
Match with roast lamb.
Gigondas, 2014 fresh red fruits and complex spices with inky pencil shavings. Lond substantial and supple.
