What’s in the glass tonight August 23rd – Côtes du Rhône

Les Gemarelles CdR 2013

Off Topic: Les Gemarelles Famille Quiot Côtes du Rhône 2013 – $

A run-out special from RW. 13.5% alc. Bright carmine.

Subdued nose. Pepper and Vegemite.

Bright fruit entry with some pizzazz. Somewhat spiky, with crunchy tannins. There was softness on the mid-palate, with a dried-fruit finish. It died in the glass a little over time, so showed not much extract or concentration.

A low-price foreign quaffer that exhibited commensurate personality. Alas, it died in-bottle completely by the 2nd day.
